“Before I Die” wall coming to Windhoek
Do you have a bucket list of things that you want to do before taking your last breath. Now you will have a chance to write it down for everyone to see when the international “Before I Die” wall project comes Windhoek this weekend. Visit the 99FM stand at the Inspiration Tables Exhibition this weekend in Windhoek – 15 & 16 September to share your your bucket list.
The Before I Die has become a global participatory public art project that reimagines our relationship with death and with one another. The original wall was created on an abandoned house in New Orleans by artist Candy Chang after the death of someone she loved. Since then, over two thousand Before I Die walls have been created in over 70 countries around the world. Each wall is created by local residents who want to make a space in their community to restore perspective and share more with one another. Each wall is a tribute to living an examined life.
Candy Chang and writer James A. Reeves have developed this space to examine our common anxieties, contemplate mortality, and better understand what it means to be human.
