Artist, Candy Chang, created the first ‘Before I Die…’ wall on an abandoned house in New Orleans after the death of someone she loved that left her world shattered. For a long time, Candy struggled with grief and depression and she became acutely aware of how few people engaged with honest conversations about death.
From this the idea to create a public piece of art was born. On an old abandoned house she created a chalk board and stencilled the words: Before I die… The response to this prompt was huge.
I offer this prompt in one of the sessions in my program, Celebrating This Precious Life: Honest Conversations about Death and Dying. Here are just a few of the responses.
