#D2KDay18 - Natural Death Care and Green Burial - Part of the Our Global Village Celebrations
Target audience: Open to the General Public
Event Type: Dying to Know Day Mini Expo with Interactive Stalls
Event Description: Dying to Know Day is an annual day of bringing to life conversations and community actions around death, dying and bereavement. It's the brainchild of the Groundswell Project and it's in its 6th year! So, we are taking this opportunity to raise the profile of natural death care and green burial in Tasmania with the support of NDAN.
The National Death Advocacy Network (NDAN) are committed to providing individuals, families and communities with professional, creative and informed assistance to choose meaningful, humane and ecological pathways at the end of life.
This event aims to introduce you to some of NDAN's Tasmanian members from around the State, plus a couple of allies, through interactive stalls and meaningful, respectful conversations.
You will also have the opportunity to view and 'touch' Dr Pia Interlandi's 'Little Black Death Dress', a commissioned piece in 2017 by the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Pia will also have a 'Community Shroud' where people can write their own messages.
Who will you meet?
