About this Death Cafe

We are three women who feel passionate about creating opportunities for conversation about death and loss in our community.


Death and loss are a natural part of life and love, but somewhere along the way it has become scary and taboo. We think open conversations about death and grief are radical acts. 



We always prepare for a birth, so why not give the same consideration for our death? We want to encourage and normalise open conversations about death, in order to be empowered and better prepared.
