We know that everyone dies, and yet hardly anyone wants to talk about it. And that is why we use theatre, poetry, music, stories, and visual art to stimulate vital conversations about dying, death, and grief.
When one of our readers send us a poem or an essay, we are honored to share those stories. And, we hope their words stimulate artistic opportunities to work through YOUR grief. We collect those stories here in our archive.
Death and grief are uncomfortable topics for most. But we are not afraid to ask the hard questions. Along the way, we share the experiences and the art of those who use their art forms to explore grief.
In the beginning, we used live stage performances to hold space for conversations around death and grief. Our library of plays depicting various scenarios of dying, death, and/or grief expanded over the next few years. Now, our repertory includes films and virtual performances.
The first book Grief Dialogues: Stories on Love and Loss collected your stories, plays, and poems on grieving. Now, our second edition is on the way! The title — Grief Dialogues: Out of Grief Comes Art. You can find submission guidelines here.
