A Matter of Life and Death 2020
Since A Matter of Life and Death 2019 we’ve been held more local death cafes, been commissioned to support focus groups for our community and run a ‘Death Day’ in a Birmingham secondary school and sharing what we have learnt about creating safe, and frequently fun spaces to talk openly about death and dying in our locality.
For A Matter of Life and Death 2020 once more we will be asking our friends, collaborators and local venues what they want to do about death and dying.
If you have an idea of an event you are going to hold please email us the details at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see how we can support you.
BrumYODO is a community collective aiming to encourage and support the people of Birmingham to have open and honest conversations about death and dying and mortality. Through creative and cultural events, festivals, debates, workshops and social media, BrumYODO is opening up discussions and ending the taboos around death and dying.
The more we talk about a subject the less it becomes fearful. Talking to those we love about death and dying also helps us prepare, plan and ensure our friends and families know our choices and preferences.
