Connectedness

Connectedness - to friends, family, nature and beyond - is a critical part of living. What might connectedness mean in our final moments?

What existing connections might we want to deepen and enrich? What unexpected connections might be newly relevant? Alternatively, what connections might we want to let go of in our final moments? Let’s create offers of connectedness and detachment leading up to and during our last moments and create them with different audiences in mind.
