Cafe Philosophique De La Mort will utilise poetry and music to prompt safe and engaging conversation around death and dying. We will seek to better understand its process, overcome our fears, consider our rituals and discuss whether we need others. We will look into grief and how we can support those experiencing loss and we will evaluate the ways our communities support the ageing process.
Ritual and Remembering
How do we remember those who have passed and how do we say goodbye? What death rituals do we have and do we need new ways to process grief and remember?
Spoken Word: John Englezos | Andy Jackson | Quinn Eades | Tariro Mavondo
Music: Nhatty Man, Daniel Seifu and Solomon Sisay perform Tizita: Ethiopian songs of nostalgia
We acknowledge this event is taking place on the stolen lands of the Boonwurrung and Wurundjeri Peoples of the Kulin Nations. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future.
This event is wheel chair accessible.
