Dying to know: Talking about death and bereavement
Saturday, 13 January 2018 at 11 am
The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre

Broken Glass is a powerful installation and performance work that illuminates the rituals of death and mourning in New South Wales and Victorian First Peoples communities. Join Joseph Medcalf Funeral Services to discuss contemporary practices around dying and bereavement, and discuss how to support loved ones and community at the end of life.

Learn how to communicate your wishes for your final goodbye. This discussion will include what funeral services are available, the costs involved, how to finance a funeral, how to organise a service, and environmentally friendly funeral practices.
