The Dinner Party is a platform for grieving 20-, 30-, and early 40-somethings to find peer community and build lasting relationships. Since 2014, The Dinner Party has connected more than 13,000 grieving peers to one another, including 2,000 since the start of the pandemic. We screen, train and support a growing network of peer hosts, and connect them to 12-15 people nearby, who share a similar age and loss experience.
How It Works:
You join the club nobody wants to join. You lose someone significant in your life: a parent, sibling, partner, child, or close friend, whether 3 months ago, 3 years ago, or 3 decades ago. You feel a little bit like an alien. It’s harder to connect with family or friends. You feel isolated, alone, unsure of how to move forward with your life. You find out about The Dinner Party. You think “What! This exists?!” and decide how you want to participate. You can sign up for Buddy System, checkout our currently available Virtual Tables, or hop on the waitlist if none strike your fancy. Perhaps you want to just stay in touch, hear about events, and special storytelling projects? You can sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
the You’re Going to Die movement is a deeper & more varied exploration of death & dying, one driven by creativity, fueled by arts & entertainment, writing & music, facilitating community connection & vulnerability, but always with the continued commitment to bring people creatively into the conversation of death & dying, while helping to inspire & empower out of an unabashed embrace of our losses & mortality… Check out events and workshops
