Cogenerational Social Healing With The On Being Project

Over the last year, CoGenerate and The On Being Project have been partnering on the curation of a digital media collection featuring creative works — music, essays, poetry, video, audio and more — that highlight the value of cogenerational approaches to social healing.

Cogenerational Social Healing is a soulful, one-of-a-kind collection! In each of the eight pieces featured, the creator explores the role of intergenerational relationships in the work of social healing, bringing their voice and efforts — as well as those of their communities — to that inquiry. The result is inspiring, generative, and resourcing.

We recently hosted a virtual event celebrating the launch of this collection. CoGenerate’s Eunice Lin Nichols and On Being’s Krista Tippett gave a special welcome followed by a roving discussion among the creatives and a sneak peak of their work. Watch the recording here

“Cross-generational relationships and mentoring have always been something that has found its way into the heart of our conversations about what it means to be human, how we want to live and who we will be to each other.” 


— Krista Tippett, The On Being Project

We’re also excited to invite you to add your own voice and creativity to what’s there! Each creative piece is accompanied by prompts for consideration and participation, as well as a space to see the reflections of others and share your own. There’s also a Community Garden where you can explore crowd-sourced submissions and join the conversation by sharing creative submissions of your own.

We hope you’ll join us in exploring this subject with The On Being Project, alongside all of the incredible creatives and artists whose work is currently featured. Please spend some time with the Cogenerational Social Healing collection, exploring the richness of all that’s there, and contribute to the conversation.
