Oasis 2020: Hope and Possibility

Watch a Replay of the Livestream to explore and honor the loss and grief we’ve experienced amid the pandemic and to look ahead to brighter days. This is our gift to you, after the crushing and confusing losses so many of us have suffered this year.

Artists such as Tesfa Wondemagegnehu, Kao Kalia Yang, Craig Minowa, and Susana De Palma will join us, along with other special guests. It’s a night of music, poetry, performances, and conversation.

In Our Hearts

A mosaic reflects the beauty in what’s broken. It takes the shards of what was and transforms them into something vibrant and new.
Our lives are mosaics of loss, but loss can lead to growth, new insights and new beginnings. Our digital mosaic honors loved ones who’ve died and the lessons they taught us.
We also salute those who live with meaning and inspiration at any stage of life. Make a donation in a loved one’s memory.
