About BrumYODO

BrumYODO is a local collective set up with the aim of helping the people of Birmingham have more open and honest conversations about Death and Dying Lack of openness and willingness to talk about death and dying has affected the quality and range of support and care services available to people who are coming to the end of their lives, including the ability to die where or how we would wish.

We’re part of a national and international social movement which believes there is such a thing as a Good Death. Our focus is to empower our community to demand better.

This May we're partnering with mac and Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery to put on a festival "A Matter of Life & Death" as the video to the right explains.
