The Nocturnists is delighted to announce our next San Francisco live storytelling event, produced in partnership with the UCSF Citywide Forensic program, on the theme of health and the criminal justice system. The event will take place at 7:00pm on Thursday, September 27th, 2018 at the Brava Theater in San Francisco.

We invite submissions from doctors, nurses, social workers, collaborative court partner agencies, case managers, administrators, attorneys, judges, law enforcement officers, formerly incarcerated people, and victims of crime. Some speakers may hold more than one of these identities. We are looking for stories about providing, receiving, or advocating for health care in the criminal justice system, or how working or living in this system impacted your own health, or the health of your loved ones.

Please submit your story ideas by midnight on Sunday, July 1st, 2018. And please share our call for submissions with your friends and colleagues! We can't wait to hear your stories.

The Nocturnists in NYC

 
 

Do you have a story to tell about death and dying?

The Nocturnists is a podcast and live storytelling event for health care workers. This fall, we are coming to New York City in partnership with Reimagine, a week-long, citywide event series whose goal is to explore the subject of death and dying through art, performance, and design. Our event will take place in the evening on Tuesday, October 30th at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe.

If you're interested in taking part in our New York event as a storyteller, please fill out this form before midnight on Saturday, June 30th and spread the word to friends, family, and colleagues. We accept submissions from all health care workers, including doctors, nurses, social workers, therapists, chaplains, and hospital administrators. If your story is selected, you will be paired with a coach who will help you craft/polish your narrative so that you feel ready to bring it to a live audience.

Join us for an evening of expression and community-building across New York City medical institutions!

Join The Nocturnists team for a festive holiday party at The Bindery, an intimate literary enclave on Haight Street. After a live panel and Q&A with some of our prior storytellers, we'll be recapping all we've accomplished in the last two years, and making some exciting announcements about upcoming projects in 2018, including an exclusive first listen to the teaser episode of our upcoming podcast! Then, afterward, enjoy some downtempo tunes spun on vinyl by our fabulous new intern, Selene, and her partner Ben.

Our 10/29/16 Nocturnists event was our biggest one to date. We had an incredible lineup, including internal medicine residents and physicians, a family medicine physician, palliative care physicians, a cardiologist, and a hospital administrator, who shared stories about DEATH AND DYING. This event was part of a larger, week-long festival in San Francisco called Re:imagine, inspired by IDEO's End Of Life Challenge. Read about the event here.
