New ways of addressing end-of-life questions

Death, loss and end-of-life issues affect us all – let’s talk about them!
PROJECTION is an opportunity to spotlight the power of our creativity and explore major questions about life—and death—from different points of view and disciplines: philosophical, medical, social, artistic, and educational.

Let’s look at things differently. Join us.
