The tool was developed in response to the tabooisation of the subject of death and grief. Its aim is to create a space and give a pretext for a group of people to talk about a shared loss. The Echo on a game basis is designed to help people open up their memories and feelings and share them with their loved ones. It provides an opportunity to experience loss and grief in a communal way, while having an individual narrative. Sensory and metaphorical accessories help to evoke memories and participants, according to the game rules, create a mind map that is a visual representation of theri loss.
