About this Death Cafe
I have organized this cafe because I want to talk about death, particularly with the people in my neighbourhood.
To be clear, there is no agenda to this Death Cafe. The objective is "to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives". It is a discussion group rather than a counselling session; conversation will crafted by the people present. Please visit deathcafe.com/what/ for more information.
I am happy to facilitate this event at Studio.89, a one-of-a-kind, fairtrade, not-for-profit youth-run cafe in Mississauga. We will be meeting in the cozy second-floor Artademic Centre, a shoe-free zone. Donations will collected for our venue.
