About Us

Reimagine End of Life is a week of asking big questions about life and death. Join us in a citywide conversation.

What We Do

Our purpose as a nonprofit organization is to host a public conversation that transforms our approach to life.

Mission

Reimagine End of Life is a community-wide exploration of death and celebration of life through creativity and conversation. Drawing on the arts, spirituality, healthcare, and design, we create weeklong series of events that break down taboos and bring diverse communities together in wonder, preparation, and remembrance.

Vision

Reimagine envisions a world in which we are all able to reflect on why we’re here, prepare for a time when we won’t be, and live fully right up until the end.

History

Reimagine was initially prototyped in 2016, inspired by OpenIDEO’s End of Life Challenge as part of an effort to investigate the intersection of art, community, and end of life. 

City Partnerships

We partner with cities in order to live out our purpose and achieve our mission and vision. 

In San Francisco, we partner with the San Francisco Palliative Care Work Group, sponsored by City and County of San Francisco via the Department of Aging & Adult Services. The Work Group is dedicated to ensuring all San Franciscans facing serious illness have access to high-quality care that is consistent with their wishes and values through research, education, outreach and influencing policy. Membership is made up of a diverse group of stakeholders who represent providers, health plans, health systems, community-based organization, faith-based organizations and professional associations.
