Connection is harder to come by during the pandemic. The isolation, the stress and the loss is taking its toll on a resilient city. During THE CITY’s MISSING THEM Memorial Event, we wanted to provide a space to speak in smaller, intimate and facilitated conversations about our personal experiences during quarantine, the grief we’re experiencing and what we’re all doing to make it through.
Each room will have a facilitator, a mental health specialist and a small group of New Yorkers. The facilitator will guide the group through a series of questions to spark discussion. Feel free to share as much or as little as you'd like. We're hoping that these conversations will provide a place to connect, share resources and learn from each other's experiences with grief and grieving.
