About this Death Cafe
Death is universal but how different people and cultures deal with it is unique. This, and much more, can only be discussed in a safe and friendly environment, and I have found Death Café to be exactly that. Death should not be a taboo subject as it will happen to any of us. I believe we should make it a normal part of our life - enabling to live it better.
I have attended several Liverpool Death Cafes (expertly led by Jamie Fearn) as a guest. Not only was this an interesting (and pleasant!) experience, I also became convinced that this Death Café had an important role in many people’s lives. That is why I’m running the Liverpool Death Cafe.
About Kristiaan D'Aout
I’m just one of nearly 8 billion humans.
A zoologist by background, I now work at the University of Liverpool where I teach and research biomechanics. This means that I want to understand how the muscles and joints of healthy people and patients work during walking and other activities.
I’m not an expert on death, but I have some experience with it (like most of us) and with regulations across countries (e.g., on euthanasia).
More than anything, I believe we need to try and squeeze the most out of our finite lives. I get my joy for life most of all from other people and from the great outdoors.
