Lost and Found: Community Gathering for Grieving and Hope


Tuesday, October 26, 2021, 5:00pm to 6:00pm


In front of Memorial Church Steps, Harvard Yard

“Lost and Found” is a two-event series acknowledging the impacts of ongoing loss and unresolved grief. A space to begin healing as a community, each event includes time for writing, reflection, and storytelling.

All are invited to also share your reflections online at: bit.ly/harvard-lost-found

All members of the Harvard community are welcome. Join us in consideration of all we have lost and what we have found.

Registration is required . Due to COVID event guidelines, this outdoor event is limited to the first 150 registrants.

Those who are waitlisted are invited to join our online program on October 28, 5-6 pm via Zoom. Register for the online event at dib.harvard.edu/events. Contact dib@harvard.edu for any questions. 


Bring a notebook, pen, and something to sit on (towel/blanket). A valid Harvard ID is required for entry to Harvard Yard. Hand sanitizing stations will be available. We ask attendees to follow the University’s face mask and social distancing policies.
