April 1: A Container Night for Death & Grief with Chelsea Granger
Join Future artist in residence Chelsea Granger as she creates space at The Future to talk about death and grief. The night will be a welcoming experiment- part artist talk, part grief circle, part workshop and ritual. This will be a time for us to talk openly about death within a death phobic culture. We will do a small ritual, and you will leave with a handout full of resources and suggestions for living & thriving in grief.
Chelsea will make a big pot of tea and invites you to sit with her in this experimental container for our grief. Bring a notebook!
