About this Death Cafe

A Death Café is a place ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their finite lives.’ (

There is no set agenda, and it is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

The Death Café is one event in a three part AHRC funded project which was overseen by poet and University of Hull academic David Kennedy, who died in March. All three events take place in Dying Matters Awareness Week.  The other events are two creative writing workshops using archaeological objects, being held in Hebden Bridge and the launch of an eBook, End Notes.

About University of Hull

Dr Melanie Giles, senior lecturer in archaeology, University of Manchester, and Terry Wragg, artist and film-maker, whose work includes three films on bereavement – Teenage Grief; Not too young to grieve; Grief in the Family.
