Fabiola Santana and Barbara Chalmers - A Home for Grief Death Café
Date 16th Jul 2023 2.00pm - 4.00pm Price Free - ticket required Location Tramway Book tickets Book for free via eventbrite
Loss comes in many shapes: Growing up, moving on, broken relationships, change of identity, death. Join our Death Café, a safe and friendly space for a small group to explore life and death, loss and grief over a cuppa and cake. 

Facilitated by Barbara Chalmers, and Fabiola Santana accompanying her Home for Grief programme of sound-walks, performance and installation (12 to 16 July)

Please bring an object you associate with loss… a letter, card, keepsake, photo… something you’re happy to talk about.  During Death Café you will create your own Grief Map and perform a ritual for letting go.

Recommended for ages 16+
This event is FREE and open to all genders, to people of faith, and no faith. Tea and cake is provided. The Death Café will be held in the Studio at Tramway which is a safe and closed space. People are welcome to enter and leave the space as they wish.

PLEASE NOTE - The group is limited to 15 people. If you make a booking and are unable to attend, please cancel your booking so someone else can take your seat.
