Organising death cafes during Covid

Hi All,

I've been thinking about doing this for a very long time and have decided to go ahead with it!

I just wondered (considering this climate) about how others have been managing with group gatherings because of Covid, if at all? 

I will start it on zoom if I need to but I'd much rather have just a small group where I can keep social distancing either at my home or in a local cafe.

I'd welcome your thoughts on it.

Many thanks

Julia

Death cafe Nikity

Olá a todos,
Estou interessada em iniciar o death cafe na cidade de Niterói - Brasil. Nesse momento será importante esse espaço. Conheci o death cafe Goiânia com a organizadora Jacqueline Amaral, que será minha madrinha para me apoiar no início do death cafe na minha cidade. Gostaria de marcar o primeiro encontro no dia 02 de novembro, dia dos mortos. Estou muito animada em participar desse movimento. O encontro seria pela plataforma Zoom dia 02/11 das 9h às 10:30. Grata. Ana Cristina

Just start one! It's wonderful. All you need is an online platform. I've hosted 27 Virtual Cafe's since Covid. We are in 8th year of Cafe's in Tucson, Arizona. Our Cafe's are Wednesday's 10-11:30am (MST) weekly if you want to join in. Am happy to help if I can email is isabeldeathcafe@gmail.com.

Be Flexible

I know I'm late to the game in responding, but I had an in-person pre-COVID and have transitioned to virtual (Zoom) meetups and I have to say it's been great. I have people attending from all over now, even from other countries, which really makes the conversation great. I will continue a virtual café even once we're back to being able to do face to face.

Having said that, however, if you can find a public (outdoor) space that has the space for proper physical distancing and follows local COVID protocols for gathering, I'd say try it! It really depends on what works for you. I always found trying to find a venue challenging, so virtual has made my life easier, and the conversation hasn't suffered.
