The Art of Difficult Conversations

The Art of Difficult Conversations
Talking about loss, grief and death and dying can leave even the most talkative speechless. Join the End in Mind Project for a deep dive into using the arts to open meaningful conversation.

Art is an instrument for meaning-making, sense-making and creating deeper levels of conversation about what matters.

While diving head-long into a conversation about our impending deaths can seem shocking and emotionally difficult to the average person, listening to a poem or song or exploring the feelings stirred up by an arresting painting makes the task much more approachable.

Come and hear about our unique approach to engaging in tough conversations using the arts, while getting a little practice in how to use these tools in your own life.

Join presenters, Christy Moe- Marek, a certified end-of-life doula, Michael Nelson, an arts educator and Cathy Wurzer, a broadcast journalist for a memorable presentation.
