This description of Lennon Flowers's work was prepared when Lennon Flowers was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2016.
Introduction
Lennon Flowers is upsetting the current clinical approach that pathologizes grief with a universal, humanizing model that empowers deeper community and personal growth. Through The Dinner Party, people who’ve lost a loved one are transforming life after loss from a deeply isolating experience and culturally taboo topic to an extraordinary tool for connection and community-building.
