Why Participate In This Worldwide Festival

Be part of something bigger: By harnessing our collective energy for good, we can make a statement to the world and provide opportunities for healing, processing, and togetherness.

Engage diverse audiences and communities: The themes that Reimagine focuses on are universal, and we want to be as inclusive as possible. Let's make these hard topics safe to discuss across different communities and global cultures.

A Community of Collaborators: Join a thriving and dynamic community of leaders and organizations committed to opening up the conversation around life and death. Now, in this digital environment, you not only have the opportunity to partner with people in your city, you can collaborate with people around the world.

Your Voice, Amplified: Reimagine will be marketing the events, plus you will be amplifying one another, so expect some increase in audience size relative to normal. We will also be showcasing your community resources, offerings, and organization details as part of a new public resources directory.

Experimentation: This is uncharted territory for all of us. As we know, we are in a unique time, with massive challenges. We’ll be learning, growing, and testing together. This is your chance to stretch and dream. We can guarantee one thing: this work is needed now more than ever.

What Kind of Events Might I Host

This festival will feature events that inspire audiences to embrace life, face death, and/or live and love fully. Our aim is for your event to help transform our approach to illness, dying, grief...and living and loving fully. Events must align with Reimagine’s core beliefs and values of inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility.

And as long as a live component is at the core of the event, virtual experiences of all kinds are welcome! We encourage interactive, interdisciplinary experiences; however, the content, format, and technology platform you choose--like Zoom, Facebook Live, or YouTube--is up to you.

Virtual program formats include: concerts, workshops, exhibition walk-throughs, intimate conversations, ceremonies or rituals, film screenings and talk-backs, author readings, artist studio visits, book club discussions, art-making projects, games, comedy, dance/movement, meditation, dinner parties, theater, end-of-life planning, cooking demonstrations, storytelling, and more.

If you wish to share websites, documents, and pre-recorded videos and podcasts, we encourage you to include those in the Resources section of our website. These resources on their own don’t constitute a live virtual experience.

We bring together people from the following sectors and disciplines:
Arts & Culture
Design & Innovation
Health & Social Services
Faith & Spirituality
