Death Cafe and Q&A with Palliative Care Consultant
11/05/2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Death can be a difficult subject to talk about but it’s often easier than you think. Whether you are new to Death Cafes or a regular visitor, Ellie Winters and Fran Moffat invite you to join them to discuss death and dying in a safe and non-judgemental space. A Death Cafe is a place for discussion rather than grief support or counselling.
Ellie and Fran met when working in hospice and are passionate about helping people to talk openly about death and dying.
There will be an opportunity afterwards for a Q&A on end of life and palliative care with Dr Anna Lock who is a palliative care consultant in Sandwell and West Birmingham where she is part of a team providing holistic, quality-of-life care to patients with serious progressive illnesses for whom cure is no longer possible.
As this is a small group event with limited spaces it’s important you reserve your space here.
This event is part of the online programme for this year’s A Matter of Life and Death Festival, our annual arts and culture event aiming to encourage conversation about death and dying.
This year’s festival will also include In Memoriam an open-air art installation outdoor artwork will be sited in the grounds of Aston Park from 8-16 May (in line with Government guidance) and an invitation to people across Birmingham and beyond to take part remotely by creating a personalised In Memoriam flag.
