"Before I Die"

The social work students in Dr. Higgins’ Fall 2012 Death and Dying and Research I classes created a Community Art Project on the campus of Salisbury University. The purpose of this project was to inspire the campus community to reflect on their hopes and dreams by addressing the question: “What do I want to do before I die?” In the Death and Dying Course, the students studied how being faced with death can be a catalyst for making meaning in life. The “Before I Die “ wall project was originated by an artist, Candy Chang, from New Orleans who had lost someone very dear to her. The Wall was up for three weeks in October, 2012.
