Event description
Death effects us all. This Festival explores how to get and give support for those situations that are the most painful in life.

About this Event

With the opioid crisis, overseas and local gang wars, and personal tragedies, today's families are struggling with a quiet yet very real struggle of loss. This Festival explores how to get and give support for these difficult situations.

Featured speaker is Dr. Allan Kellehear, creator of the Compassionate City Charter, from Burlington, Vermont. His talk is entitled, "Building Compassionate Communities and Cities: A Public Health Approach to Palliative Care”

Join us in a community wide gathering of over 20 New West service providers and people from all walks of life committed to making New West a Compassionate City.
