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 Sunday, July 15th 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!

Then, afterward, enjoy some downtempo tunes spun on vinyl by our fabulous new intern, Selene, and her partner Ben.

The Nocturnists



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.
