Public Authority will host event for Re:Imagine End of Life Posted on April 1, 2018
Re:Imagine End of Life is a week-long, City-wide collection of events exploring death and celebrating life through the arts, spirituality, health care and design taking place April 16-22, 2018, at venues across the City. Event details and tickets are available at www.letsreimagine.org/san-francisco or by calling (415) 329-6911.
More than half of the events are free, and many are taking place at local Senior Centers. In addition, many congregations are having special sermons the weekend before, April 13 – 15. Conversation Sabbath, an initiative of Reimagine, is inviting clergy throughout San Francisco to preach or teach about the vital importance of having values-centered conversations with our loved ones about what matters most when it comes to care at the end of life. There will also be Advanced Care Planning Workshops at churches, community centers and libraries throughout the week.
The Public Authority, Zen Hospice Project and True Story Theater are hosting a free event called Preparing for Death: A Story-Sharing Experience. We are inviting home caregivers and consumers alike to share their questions and stories as we learn how to talk about our end of life wishes on Wednesday, April 18 1pm – 3pm, at the African American Arts and Cultural Complex, 762 Fulton Street (cross street is Webster). This promises to be a lively, entertaining and thought provoking event. Join us!
