Final Fling is delighted to have been accepted to take part in the phenomenon that is Marlie Mul’s ‘This Exhibition Has Been Cancelled’. We’ll be exploring funerals, why we have them, what’s changing and find out whether they deliver what we need.
Why do we do funerals the way we do? How else might we say our goodbyes? If you were planning your own funeral, might it differ from the one you’d get if family organised it? Does that matter? What have you learned about funerals from experience?
The Thing About Funerals Is… is a two-part exploration of funerals coming up on 24 June and on 7-8 July at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow. Brought to you by Final Fling, they will both give breathing space for the public to engage in conversations, reflection and provocations about how we say our goodbyes.
What do you do at a Death Cafe? That’s often the first question folk ask when they hear about Death Cafes. See our natty ’10 Facts About a Death Cafe’ graphic that tells you in simple terms what you do at a Death Cafe.
Final Fling is running a Death Cafe in Glasgow for Dying Matters Awareness Week.
This time we’re working with Douglas Hall, a bereavement counsellor, to explore emotions associated with death and dying.
