Death Cafe on Zoom

March 17, 2022 , 6:00pm 7:30pm

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 25 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, what music you want played at your funeral, or how death is depicted on television and in film.

Join Gabrielle Gatto, Green-Wood’s Coordinator of Public Programs who holds a certificate in Thanatology, as she invites participants to share their thoughts, anxieties, hopes, and questions about death. It’s an opportunity for safe and open exchanges over Zoom. In-person Death Cafes return in May! 

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.
