Elizabeth Coplan is the founder of the non-profit Grief Dialogues, an artistic movement to create a new conversation about dying, death, and grief, She is an award-winning playwright, educator and speaker, subject matter expert and curator who helps others explore their grief and attitude toward death.
Through a collaboration with many partners, she gives voice to individual grief experiences and to organizations who help people in the process of dying. She believes that using art to start an honest conversation about death is one of the most effective and culturally appropriate ways to deal with loss. Her recent film 8 AM was the winner of several awards for selection including the Seattle International Film Festival, Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival, Anchorage Film Festival, Byron Bay Festival (Australia), Cleveland International Film Festival, and YES Film Festival in Columbus, IN.
Her play, Grief Dialogues, enjoyed sold out performances in Seattle, and recently opened at the Dramatists Guild National Conference in New York. This fall Elizabeth brings the play to Las Vegas where Grief Dialogues, along with two Las Vegas theatre companies, will honor the victims/survivors of the October 1, 2018 mass shooting.
