Sharon Stevens speaks on creating a compassionate space for remebrance and reflection.
Inspired by both ancient and contemporary traditions, Equinox Vigil is a creative, respectful evening to remember the deceased and celebrate the natural cycle of Life and Death itself. Each year near the Autumnal Equinox, people of all ages and beliefs gather in historic Union Cemetery. There, surrounded by fresh flowers, fluttering flags and glowing lanterns, they join members of Calgary’s vibrant arts community in creating bittersweet rituals of remembrance and reflection. Inspiring art installations, video projections, and shrines created by professional artists form the heart of the Equinox Vigil experience. Free and family-friendly.
