Ever feel like bringing up mortality is a real dead end to conversations*? Never fear! If so, you’re in good company. Grab some blank paper, your dearest pen, and your favorite beverage for a Drink & Draw Death Café this coming Friday, January 15th at 7:30PM CT hosted by artist Rob Kelsy & death doula, Rian Lussier!
A Drink & Draw is exactly what is sounds like, a gathering where we sketch & sip: simultaneously drafting away at your own piece while enjoying a glass of your choice, whereas a Death Café is a safe space to talk and listen to thoughts, questions, and curiosities we have on dying and death! They exist to carve a space where people can connect, share, and support in discussing what can sometimes feel like a taboo topic.
Death Cafés foster fluidity, inclusion, and vulnerability – they exist without an agenda or dogma.
Due to the pandemic, you can Zoom into this one from the comfort of your own abode. So gather your materials (not limited to paper arts! ) and garner your death-y thoughts for an open conversation on the most universal subject.
This event is free but due to the intimate nature of the event space is very limited! If you cannot make this upcoming time, no worries! This is the first of an ongoing series, more to follow will include dry cafés, more community-specific death cafés, and more!
Please note – This is not a grief support group or counseling session. If you are interested in pursuing either of those, please do not hesitate to reach out, we are happy to provide you with resources.
Hope to see you there!
