Community Activities

The main objectives of Celebrating Life 2022 are: to create a space for people of Calgary to grief in community; to celebrate together that we are here; and to inspire about the brighter future ahead of us.

 

Our virtual program on March 15, 2022, will be an opportunity to reflect on these objectives at the second anniversary of Covid-19, and to make the formal announcement of all the virtual and in person activities we are planning for this spring.

 

The spring program includes artistic and creative performances, visits to the cemetery, digital tributes, community gatherings and other different activities taking place virtually and in person around our city.

A Toolkit for Grief

Every person, and every community, has experienced some type of loss since the pandemic began in early 2020. Grief is a natural human experience that we may be feeling. This toolkit is to help us think, act, and change through our grief stories, making them meaningful to us and our communities.
