The Death Cafe is a simple concept. Bring strangers together to discuss one of the great universal truths: death. With thousands of chapters in over 26 countries around the world, Death Cafes are informal gatherings that aim to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” There is no set agenda, but small group conversations might include thoughts on burial versus cremation, green burials, what music you want played at your funeral, or a personal experience you had dealing with grief.
Price: Free. Registration required.
In this virtual version of the popular program, Gabrielle Gatto, Green-Wood’s coordinator of public programs who holds a certificate in Thanatology, invites you to share your thoughts, anxieties, hopes, and questions about death. It’s an opportunity for safe and open exchanges over Zoom.
Free. Registration required. Please consider a $10 donation to the Green-Wood Historic Fund so that we can continue to offer free and low-cost programs throughout the year. A Zoom link will be in your confirmation email upon registration.
