Reimagine | About Us

About Us

Reimagine is a non-profit organization sparking community-driven festivals and conversations that explore death and celebrate life.

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 spark experiences and festivals 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 through the end. In facing death, we begin to live fully.

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.
