The Science of Grief

In August, poet Natasha T. Miller had a powerful idea to open a space overnight where any person could come and talk about their grief onstage to a silent audience and to a live streamed audience. Grief comes at different hours for different people and everyone deserves a listening ear no matter what

time of day or night it is.

In partnership with Science Gallery Lab Detroit and the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Science of Grief is a 14-hour community conversation and performance on grief. This event is free and open to the public

Opening with Natasha Miller speaking to her personal story of grief, then continuing with each hour of the event being broken down into seven specific types of grief: Queer grief, Detroit grief, Suicide grief, Trans grief, Sibling grief, Parent grief, and Terminal Illness. People are invited to share their personal stories of grief in 15 minute increments. There will be a mixture of professional performers on stage performing through the night.

This event is not only for those who choose to speak but for anyone who wants to be in community with others who are experiencing grief, for those who want to stand witness to those experiencing grief, or those that hope to offer a listening ear. A group of clergy, therapists, and pastors will be avalible on site, as well as grief-related non-profits and other resources.

Audience members do not have to stay the entire 14 hours, but we ask that you remain respectful to the person who has the stage. No hate speech or heckling will be tolerated.

We are still looking for volunteers and participants as well as non-profit partners who are working in the same vein. If you're interested in participating or volunteering for this event please fill out the corresponding google form below:
