Out Of Grief Comes Art

No one likes to deal with death, but many talented artists turn to their craft to express their grief. Tune in as Grief Dialogues founder Elizabeth Coplan and co-host Halle Williams explore art forms, speak to artists describing their creative processes, and ask those uncomfortable questions about death and grieving that we all avoid. 

Meet The Hosts

Elizabeth Coplan

Elizabeth is a 40+ year marketing veteran and Grief Dialogues founder. She believes that using art to start an honest conversation about death and grief is one of the most effective and culturally appropriate ways to deal with loss.

According to Elizabeth, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross said it best when she wrote:

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.

She credits art as the most influential means out of her own depths and points to her motto, Out of Grief Comes Art, as the pavement on the road to healing.

Elizabeth created this podcast to share the artistic expression of a variety of artists who are working their way through grief one artistic endeavor at a time.

Halle Williams

Halle, a digital brand strategist, serves passionately as the Marketing Director of Grief Dialogues and speaks as one of the hosts on the Out Of Grief Comes Art podcast. While serving as a social media maven and marketer for years prior with Grief Dialogues, her involvement felt all the more important with the recent and sudden passing of her father in 2022. Halle is now on a mission to emphasize the importance of end-of-life pre-planning and encourage younger demographics to explore death conversations. 

Forever and always an artist and musician at heart, Halle eagerly seeks out creators who have used art to help them heal.
