Death Cafés are events put on by an international network of volunteers with the objective “to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.”
Death Cafés are open, minimally facilitated discussion groups about death and dying with no agenda, objectives, or themes, and with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product, or course of action. Tea and cake are always provided!
This particular Death Café event will be geared towards people who work in end-of-life care (such as hospice workers and volunteers, palliative care staff, chaplains, etc.).
Although death is an everyday part of their lives, people who work in EOL care are not often given chances to speak freely and openly about their experiences and thoughts on the subject. This event will be an open space for those who work in EOL care to talk about death with their peers.
