It takes a village: exhibition tour
Good Life Good Death Good Grief (the Scottish cousin of Dying Matters) has been busy coordinating efforts across Scotland to mark Dying Matters Week from 9-16 May.
A series of portraits by Colin Gray explores the idea ‘it takes a village to raise a child’, this time in the context, then it probably takes a village to support a death.
The idea came from interviews by the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care and the exhibition shares personal insights and experiences from a range of people who have cared for someone who is dying.
It Takes a Village is touring venues across Scotland during Death Awareness Week Scotland.
