Documentary Film

Posted by TomWhitehead on Sept. 13, 2016, 10:05 a.m. 2 comments


Hello,

I'm a filmmaker working on a documentary film around death at the University of Westminster, my name is Tom Whitehead. Our film will be discovering the various phisilophical perspectives on death in contemporary culture and the ways in which it is dealt with. We want to open up a diolouge, we would be greatly intrested in connecting with anybody involved with Death Cafe about taking part in our film. We want to explore Death Cafe, it's function, it's meaning, the people involved. Please contact me at: w1484651@my.westminster.ac.uk if you're intrested, Thank you.

Hello, I am often asked if someone can bring their child. While I prefer not, I find it difficult to answer this question at times.  I am curious about the thoughts of others.   Thank you

Scottsdale Death Café

I am finding it impossible to post a new meeting for our Death Café. When I go to "Post your Death Café, all I can get is a page to post a new D.C. We have been holding these meetings off and on for almost two years, so we are not new. 

I need some help in posting notice of our next meeting, on September 8th,  2016.

Thanks in advance. My email is: boldrider@hotmail.com

Finding the CURRENT Death Cafe usig the map

Posted by Alliance on Aug. 17, 2016, 4:45 p.m. 1 comment


We hold Death Cafe regularly in our commuinity, and always post an announcement of the upcoming one... If a search is made for either of our 2 local zipcodes, the details which are shown are those of a Death Cafe held in April 2015, and not the one that is CURRENT.

Is there a way to remove the archived offerings, or at least disconnect them from the search map?

Issue with sending emails to Microsoft addresses

Posted by Jon Underwood on Aug. 10, 2016, 2:19 a.m.


Hi,

 

Just to let you know, the Death Café website is currently having a problem with sending mail to Microsoft email addresses, e.g. hotmail.com addresses or outlook.com or live.com (or a couple of others).

 

All mail to these addresses is currently not getting through to the intended recipient and generating an error message.

 

I am forwarding all these mails on by hand but this may take some time.

Photography at the cafe

Posted by SHK on Aug. 8, 2016, 12:11 p.m.


A local magazine would like to do an aritlce about the Death Cafe and asked if they can come and take pictures at the event.  My gut says it's fine becasue it's another way to get the word out (as long as I annouce at the beginning that that will take place) but wanted others thoughts.

Weird people at death cafes

Posted by DeathCafeZurich on Aug. 5, 2016, 4:58 a.m. 2 comments


Death Café Zürich seems to attract people with mental and/or social deficits. Their behavior is excessive and inappropiate and they draw attention their way and away from the purpose of death cafe.

It has happened more than once and I'm worried it might damage the death cafe by discouraging genuine interested people from coming again.

I wonder if this is a typically urban problem and if other death cafes share this experience. And I'm looking for ways to handle/cope with it.

support

I have a question, the page said new religious groups can't be a supporter, does that mean my Unitarian Universalist church could not donate space or coffe and tea?

Thank you

RSVP's

Posted by Mava on July 7, 2016, 4:13 p.m. 6 comments


we are about to hold our first Death Cafe meeting/gathering in September and we were wondering if after publicity has circulated with date, place and time, if it would be a good idea to provide an email address, designated to our death Cafe and ask for rsvp's in case we have a bigger response than anticipated. Our meeting place can only accomodate a total of 20 people.  Just wondered how other organizers handled this issue. We don't like the idea of having to turn anyone away, due to limited space.

Use of Death Cafe in Email Address

Posted by Mava on July 7, 2016, 2:50 p.m. 1 comment


I am sure it is specified here somewhere but I am just going to cut through and ask:

Is it okay to create an email for the purpose of RSVP's that has the name Death Cafe in the email address? For instance:

deathcafe.pec@gmail.com

Poor Turnout

Posted by Cat Martin on June 29, 2016, 7:25 a.m. 3 comments


Held my first death cafe, one person attended. I'm disappointed! What do a I need to do to get more bums on seats?

I put up about 15 posters, at various venues and advertised in local free media, print and radio.

Would including my name and phone number help? I didn't for the first lot of publicity, figuring I didn't want the hassle and that the me isn't important.

Thanks in advance for ideas and suggestions

deleting a scheduled death cafe?

Posted by penny on June 26, 2016, 11:03 a.m. 1 comment


Hello,

I need to cancel a Death Cafe that I've posted and can't find how to do this. No-one has booked yet so its simply a matter of deleting it before anyone books.


Thank you

best wishes

Guidelines for the number of Death Cafes per city

Posted by JanetElaine on April 26, 2016, 8:46 p.m. 1 comment


I am wondering what guidelines are to be used to determine how many death cafes can be hosted in a city or area. Is there any rule of thumb.
