Death Cafe

Death Cafe

Details

Held in The Gate House Café, Abbey House Museum.

At death cafés friends and strangers meet to discuss death over tea and cake. There is no agenda, objectives or themes, other than to increase awareness and openness about death. It is a discussion group and not a grief support or counselling session. The intention is not to reach a conclusion or a plan a course of action. We aim to create a comfortable, respectful, and confidential space. You can find out more here [http://www.deathcafe.com/].

This talk is part of a programme of events linked to Abbey House Museum's exhibition Remembrance.

How have we chosen to remember those close to us in the past? How important are objects, places and actions in helping us tell personal stories today about those we have lost? This new display, co-curated with Abbey House Museum and the University of Leeds, reflects on how commemoration has changed since the Victorian era and features contributions from people in contemporary Leeds.
