Death over Dinner!
The ritual of breaking bread with others creates connections and is universal to all of humanity. Throughout history, conversations held over the dinner table have led to some of the greatest artistic endeavours and political revolutions that have ever witnessed. Death over Dinner provides a safe space to explore your fears, thoughts and feelings about death and end-of-life care. It is now a global movement with more than 100 000 events worldwide. We look forward to having you join us over dinner.
