16-28 year old UK Death Cafe hosts/facilitators for BBC radio programme

Posted by Chelsea

Hi everyone,

I produced a programme about Death Cafes for the World Service last year - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0506ttc - and having received such a positive response, I'm keen to bring Jon's work and the death cafe movement to other BBC audiences.

Therefore, I'm currently looking for young people (ideally aged between 16 - 28) who have either already hosted, facilitated or helped organise a Death Cafe in the UK, or would like to do so in the future.

At this stage, I'm just after a quick chat on the phone - no recording. If this does go on to become a programme, it would be audio only - no cameras. Please do have a listen to the doc above to show you how sensitively we deal with the subject.

If you fit the mould, or know of anyone who does, please get in touch with me on chelsea@audioalways.com

Many thanks!



There is a great need

Chelsea, the idea for younger people to get involved in conversations about death and life is important. Well done for getting this together. I wish you success and look forward to what you come up with! I definitely think there is a great need for young people of underprivileged groups to come and talk to each other and for young people of different backgrounds to hear and learn from each other.
I had suggested to hold a Death Cafe for refugees, but did not get very far. Art is always a good way of helping people to address difficult subjects.
