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. The exact date and venue are still TBD, but our event will take place during the Reimagine week, which is 10/27-11/3.
If you're interested in taking part in our New York event as an audience member, volunteer, or storyteller, please fill out the form on our submission page and forward this website 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 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.
We are excited to announce that the next Nocturnists event will be co-hosted by TEACH, a local non-profit supporting women's reproductive health, on Saturday, June 10th from 6-9pm at PianoFight in San Francisco. The theme is REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH.

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.
