You are cordially invited to
The first ever
Broken Pencil Virtual Death Café!
This Thursday evening, join Broken Pencil for a special online event — out first death café!
Our Spring issue is all about how artists, activists, and ordinary people are defying centuries-old myths about our lives’ big finale.
In her feature article profiling the death positivity movement, Tanya Mok explains that “death cafés play an instrumental role in what has come to call itself the ‘death-positive movement’: a global re-examination of modern society’s relationship with death. From greener burial methods to more personalized end-of-life support to ways re-embed the processes of death and dying back into everyday life, deathcare’s recent boom is as vast as its potential impact.”
We’re inviting our readers and friends to hop on to a special Zoom conversation with BP’s editor Jonathan Valelly, our publisher Hal Niedzviecki, Against Death anthology editor Elee Karljii Gardiner and Tanya Mok, who wrote our Spring issue’s feature on the death positivity movement.
You’re welcome to participate and bring your own thoughts and experiences, but you’re also welcome to simply tune in and listen.
Join us starting today at 7:30
