Reimagine End of Life works by empowering community members and organizations to host or participate in new events.
What types of events can I host?
We collaborate with individuals and organizations to program events from a variety of perspectives in the fields of arts and entertainment; spirituality and religion; healthcare and social services; and design and innovation.
You can host almost any kind of event you can dream up! It must help spark a more conscious conversation about end of life, and align with our values of inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility.
Event types: workshops, concerts, art exhibits, conversations, rituals, film, performances, talks, games, comedy, dance, meditations, theater, end of life planning, food, storytelling, etc.
Venue examples: theaters, parks, galleries, cemeteries, offices, houses of worship, hospitals, homes, community centers, senior centers, restaurants, etc.

Step 1: To host an event at Reimagine NYC, you'll need to fill out an Event Concept Proposal. This is a brief, general overview of your event idea, confirming your desire and intent to participate as a collaborator. We will review it for approval and get back to you quickly about Step Two.
Step 2: Once your concept is accepted, you'll be awarded access to our online Collaborator Portal, where you'll upload all your event details (venue, time, title, description, photos, etc) and ticketing information (price, capacity, etc), due by our Event Submission Deadline of April 1st.
The sooner you get the Concept Proposal in and accepted, the longer you'll have to solidify your details in the Portal. You'll need the time. Do it now!
NOTE: You can host events from June 9 - June 13 (June 8 and June 14 – the first and last day of the festival – are reserved for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, which all collaborators should attend).
How do we work together?
What Reimagine expects of collaborators:
Reimagine is a small (but mighty) team, and we depend on collaborators to be self-directed and resourceful to turn their event into a reality. You’re expected to produce all aspects of your event and promote it.
What collaborators can expect from Reimagine:
Reimagine strives to amplify your individual efforts! We offer robust support processes and customized technologies and include your event in our festival programming, ticketing, and marketing. Additionally, we welcome you into an amazing and growing interdisciplinary community of collaborators who want to see you succeed!
As a Reimagine collaborator, you'll have an opportunity to get curious and creative; grow your skills as an experience designer; gain new audiences; forge new relationships; be part of something bigger than all of us.
