How We Live: Narratives, Artifacts, and Conversations About End-of-Life

If you've ever wondered what the end of life can look like, come join us on Thursday, January 10th from 6:00 - 9:00 PM for "How We Live: Narratives, Artifacts, and Conversations About End-of-Life," an event that explores the intersections of end of life and modern medicine through art and live storytelling.

Part of our event features a gallery of artifacts and narratives from patients, family members, community members, students, and healthcare providers revolving around direct or indirect experiences with end-of-life care in the medical system. We will also be hearing personal narratives from family members and healthcare providers during the live storytelling portion of the event.

Our goal is to create a space for open dialogue about what the end of life can look like, as well as the many ways people live with a life-limiting illness. This event is to be as much a celebration of life as it is a discussion about death, and we hope to foster a supportive and healing environment for all attendees. We hope you will join us for an evening of listening, sharing, and reflecting.


This event is free and open to the public. Food will be provided, so please RSVP.
