Despair Sanctuary is a drone metal vigil for all who are weary. Whether you're mourning a profound loss, in the throes of a deep depression, burdened with rage, or struggling to find hope—all are welcome! Immersed in sound, we will make space for negative emotions and hold together what is unbearable alone.

It will feature a curated drone metal playlist, poetry readings, and a live performance by Brooklyn drone metal band Chthonic Rites.

Attendees are also invited to engage in a calming activity during the vigil, such as drawing, coloring, journaling, yoga, and candle lighting.
