See recaps of our past festivals and learn more about the thousands of events our collaborators have hosted with Reimagine.
Grief, Growth, and Action, 2021
Our Fall 2021 theme focused on growth after trauma. To help repair broken hearts and a broken world, it is important to remain steadfast in our belief that beautiful things can come from the hardest places, and that we’re more powerful when we come together to grieve, grow, and take action.
Creating Space, 2020
In the Fall of 2020, we created more spaces for what matters most as we reimagined (end of) life in the face of a pandemic, political upheaval, and racial injustice. Our collaborators created hundreds of spaces for healing, for grieving and mourning, for truly reckoning with racial inequities, for joy and anger, for silence and dialogue, for art and action -- and for coming together in unity within and across all communities.
Life, Loss, & Love, 2020
From May through August 2020, Reimagine presented Life, Loss, & Love, a worldwide virtual festival on embracing life, facing death, and loving fully in the face of COVID-19. Thank you to all the collaborators and attendees who made this possible.
San Francisco Bay Area, 2019
In 2019, we hosted more than 250 experiences all around the Bay Area, from the California Academy of Sciences, The Punchline, the Boys and Girls Club, the Mezzanine, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, The Asian Art Museum, The SF Libraries, The Walt Disney Museum, community centers, art galleries, churches, temples, parks, bars, concert venues, and more.
New York City, 2018

San Francisco Bay Area, 2018
In 2018, the city of San Francisco, along with a broader community, joined together to create 175 events exploring death and celebrating life.
San Francisco Bay Area, 2016
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.
