About this Death Cafe

Death Cafe is an informal, international organization that provides a time and a place for people to gather, drink tea and eat cookies, while discussing death. The objective of these gatherings is "to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives."

This event has no objectives or agendas and is an open discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

We are pleased to welcome Paula Courage to facilitate our session. Paula has coordinated numerous Death Cafes in St. John's over the last few years and has experienced the personal growth and change that can occur when you are free to discuss a topic that is often seen as taboo or off-limits.

This event is held in tandem with Philippa Jones' exhibition Suspended, which dwells on mortality, loss and cycles of rebirth. We will visit the exhibition with the artist half-way through the cafe. For more about Jones' exhibition, please visit

IMPORTANT You must RSVP to attend this event. The cost is included with admission to the Rooms (no additional cost to attend the Death Cafe). 25 seats are available for this event to ensure everybody has the opportunity to speak and contribute. Please contact Visitor Services at the Rooms to register your spot at 757-8090. Death Cafe was founded by Jon Underwood, based on the work of Bernard Crettaz.
