Borrowed Time: on death, dying & change

Borrowed Time:

on death, dying & change

 

throughout 2021, culminating November 1-3

What constitutes ‘a good death’? How do we know death, personally? What room do we make for the dead –– within our relationships, our ways of speaking, our shared geographies? And how might the insights of end-of-life care and death practices help us to navigate the fundamental unsustainability of the dominant culture, and to better imagine what comes after it?

Over the coming year art.earth will open a space to explore these and other questions pertaining to death, dying and change, and to ask what dying has to teach us about living well, and living sustainably. This space will include and culminate in a summit/celebration November 1-3, 2021 – in whatever form is appropriate to the circumstances at hand.
