EMERGENCE is an immersive multi-part art installation created by the Classroom of Compassion in collaboration with Keck School of Medicine at USC that honors the massive transformation and challenges that caregivers have experienced for the past year and a half. Both a personal meditation and communal practice, this experience is constructed of four co-created spaces: a Sea Glass Memory Wall, a Community Check-In, three Rock Islands, and a Rock Garden. With its natural stone facades, lush gardens, and meditative experiences, each element of EMERGENCE provides caregivers with a grounding space to honor what they’ve lost, a gathering place to connect with their fellow caregiver, and an imaginative sanctuary to visualize the future they hope to build.
