How to Raise a Ghost

Initiated by Mia van Leeuwen and Nancy Sandercock, *How to Raise a Ghost is an ambitious research-creation project that explores the artist’s role in death, dying and memorial practices. Inspired by the Death Positive Movement and the ancient practice of Momento Mori, the work seeks multi-perspectivism on the subject by engaging in death studies research, artistic inquiry, philosophical contemplation, collaborative practice, and interviews with other artists about their relationship to death. More information coming soon.

*Funding support from the University of Lethbridge Research Fund (ULRF) for phase III of project development.
