Event Description:

​Before I Die:  A Participatory Art Installation
In her captivating and intimate talks, Chang demystifies the creative process, inspires personal reflection, and provokes new ideas for community and well-being.

Candy Chang is a world-renowned artist and urban designer.  She engages communities to share everything from their greatest hopes to their deepest anxieties in public. In her captivating and intimate talks, she demystifies the creative process, inspires personal reflection, and provokes new ideas for community and well-being.

Through the activation of public spaces around the world, Chang provokes both playful and profound visions for how we can connect, reflect, and nurture the health of our communities.  Chang is best known for the Before I Die project, which began when she stenciled the words “Before I die I want to _________” on a chalkboard wall on an abandoned house in New Orleans after losing someone she loved. The participatory project has since grown into a global phenomenon and today there are over 2,000 Before I Die walls in over 70 countries, including Iraq, China, Brazil, Kazakhstan, and South Africa.

Chang was named one of the Top 100 Leaders in Public Interest Design by Impact Design Hub and a “Live Your Best Life” Local Hero by Oprah Magazine. “Through a series of large-scale projects that combine installation art with social activism, Chang has encouraged people to engage with public spaces and let their voices be heard.” – O Magazine
