In a world that is hurt and damaged, how do we begin to talk about death and the loss of a loved one? Where are the spaces for talking about grief? Join us for an intimate conversation about loss and grief in a post-pandemic world. This is a holistic discussion, where we will ask experts, pioneers, artists and practitioners why and how they use grief as a source of creativity, and how they channel their grief through creativity and creating spaces for dialogue. Find out about the open spaces created where we can collectively bear witness and slow down.
