Sunday 17th May
This year we are collaborating with the 4th International Conference on Public Health and Palliative Care on a series of events and performances that look at death and dying in fascinating and unique ways.
Emma Edwards, originator of www.notbeingmorbid.com, has been holding Death Café events in Bristol for a couple of years, and we are delighted to be partnering with Emma on May’s Death Café at Cox and Baloney Tea Rooms on Cheltenham Road. Cox and Baloney’s have a delicious selection of nice teas, homemade cakes and sandwiches, so don’t forget your purse!
What is a Death Cafe?
Death Cafe’s are a place to come together and talk about death in a relaxed, safe, social, cafe environment (thus they have a very different feeling to a formal workshop).
The objective of Death Café is, “To increase awareness of the reality of death, so we can enjoy feeling more fully alive“. The conversations are always new and fresh. Each time we meet the changing mix of people ensures that you can come to any number of events and be guaranteed a vibrantly new and fresh experience each time.
The concept was developed by Jon Underwood and Sue Barsky Reid, and you can find out more about death cafes at http://deathcafe.com
Death Cafes are free to attend, and there’s no need to book. Please note that you will need to arrive promptly for a 2pm start.
