Window Seat Media announces the launch of its newest Community Stories Project: InhaleExhale: Honoring Life and Navigating the Journey of Death. What are our “blueprints” for dying? Where do these stories come from and how do they inform the care we seek and receive? What stories complicate our “master narratives,” and what can we learn from those stories? “Our goal with this project,” says Lead Curator, Elaine Vradenburgh, “is to share powerful stories and ideas, access new ideas, and ask what is possible for end-of-life care in the South Sound community.” The project launch will be held on Saturday, November 16 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Lord Mansion in Olympia, Washington.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- Participate in interactive workshops with speakers from around the state who will share their knowledge and experience with alternative, progressive death care – including the role of death doulas, how to have a home funerals, and green burial and emerging alternatives
- Learn about new progressive legislation – human composting and alkaline hydrolysis – providing more environmentally friendly options for our bodies after death
- Reflect on your own journey and honor loved ones through playback theater, writing workshops, and a pop-up exhibit
- Access resources so you can better plan for end-of-life
Sliding scale tickets available and no one turned away for lack of funds. Space is limited.
This is a unique opportunity. It is for anyone who wants to feel empowered about end-of-life care For a full event schedule, session descriptions, speaker bios, and to buy tickets, visit the Window Seat Media website.
