Before I die...

The Before I Die Wall is a global public art project which was started by Candy Chang, following the death of someone close to her.

She turned a wall of an abandoned house in her neighbourhood of New Orleans into a collaborative chalkboard, and invited people to reflect on what was important to them and anonymously share their dreams and aspirations of what they want to do before they die. Walls have been created in over 35 languages and 70 countries around the world.

Take a moment to reflect and add to our virtual wall. To open it in a new tab, right-click on the link.
