For the past two years the non-profit Reimagine organization has been staging annual, city-wide life- and death-affirming festivals in San Francisco and NYC. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Reimagine has canceled the planned NYC festival and pivoted to organizing a two-month long, international online event.
Reimagine Life, Loss and Love (May 1 – July 9) features a huge range of both paid and free online lectures, performances, art exhibits, meditations, storytelling sessions and more, on the themes of:
- WONDER: consider the big questions about life and death, illness and loss, love and connection, through spirituality, science, and the arts
- PREPARE: plan for and manage serious illness, dying, and death, for ourselves and the people we care about
- REMEMBER: process who and what is no longer here, through honor, memories, and actions
- LIVE FULLY: in the face of our impermanence, embrace life, our families, our communities, and our planet, through well-being, purpose, and positive impact
The schedule already includes dozens of confirmed presentations and many more will be added over the coming weeks. Reimagine is also currently inviting event concept submissions from people who wish to host their own presentations as part of Life, Loss and Love.
