Virtual Death Cafes

 

THINKING ABOUT TAKING YOUR DEATH CAFE ONLINE?

We've received a little flurry of emails asking about Virtual Death Cafes; how to plan, what works and what doesn't. The emails are coming to me from the main death cafe website where we've been posting our Virtual Death Cafes since January.

I thought it might be helpful to share some information here for any other hosts who are thinking about taking their Death Cafe's online.

Zoom is an excellent platform for these conversations. We generally get 40 to 50 people interested and far fewer who actually show up. About a third of those who express an ...

Any help welcome - relative will not do this on her request.

I am organizing my first Death Cafe, I have learned others have attempted and failed. I don't want to fail. So I am reaching out to a seasoned Death Cafe planner to assist and/or provide a composite to edit and send to local newspapers, etc.

I thank you in advance.

Phd Death Café Research - seeking participants (London)

To all London Café attendees...

8 PARTICIPANTS NEEDED for RESEARCH into DEATH CAFÉS and BEREAVEMENT

I am a Counselling Psychology doctoral student at the University of Roehampton and I am looking for up to 8 volunteers to take part in my research.

This project will be exploring the experience of attending a Death Café (DC) as a bereaved person, focussing more specifically on how the DC may (if at all) be significant for meaning-making in the wake of loss.

As a participant in this study, you would be asked to attend a one-to-one interview with me. Your participation is entirely voluntary and would take up approximately 45minutes ...

Hi there,

I am a Bereavement Officer at the Queen's Medical Centre Hospital. My team are currently on a fundraising endeavour to raise money for a new department and, in the new year, we are embarking on a series of fundraising events. We would love it if one of those events could come in the form of a Death Cafe for people to gather, drink tea, eat cake and of course, talk about death! However, I was wondering if we are allowed to have donation buckets for the bereavement department at the event or whether this is something that you discourage. 

Thank you in advance for your advice and guidance,

Hannah

New to Death Cafe

Posted by khudghton on Oct. 4, 2019, 9:14 a.m. 1 comment


Hi all

I have just discovered Death Cafe and am very keen to hold my own in Manchester, UK. I work in the events industry so have a good support network to make this happen.

I am just wondering how we market this in terms of what we name it - is it a 'charity'? Are we 'volunteers'? I know it is not for profit but I am struggling with the phrasing.

Do we also need to have any sort of official approval or are we pretty much just left to our own devices? Any help apart from the guide on here would be v useful.

Thank you

Feedback from attendees

Posted by Brigid on Sept. 23, 2019, 7:48 a.m. 2 comments


I have run a few Death Cafes now and almost every time I have had feedback from some people saying they'd find it helpful to have some prompts or questions. I have never done this, as I'm aware of the guidelines, but I can see how it might be helpful for some people who want to talk about death but don't know what they want to talk about specifically.

Has anyone had similar feedback? How have you dealt with it? Have you renamed your Death Cafe to something other than Death Cafe and had things like questions/prompts?

venue

Posted by Juli on Sept. 16, 2019, 11:41 a.m.


Hi there,

I would like to host a death cafe in Munich, Germany in order to raise awareness. I have a practice for psychotherapy and would like to host the meeting in one of my practice rooms as it is free of cost and large enough. However, I read your policy and was wondering if holding the meeting at my practice would create any conflict of interest (according to your rules). I would not promote myself obviously, but the room is in my practice location. Thanks.

Press enquiry

Posted by Deathpositive on Aug. 26, 2019, 6:54 a.m. 1 comment


hi there 

I wonder if anyone can help? Im hosting a death cafe at a venue that has its own magazine - and they have asked me to be interviewed for it. There are questions about death cafe so I can answer them and give all the info on the guidelines/ history/ how to start one etc but there are also some personal questions on my opinions about death etc. The magazine is for the venue only  and will not be available at the death cafe for the participants. Is this ok? and does anyone have any advice re guidelines and press? 

many thanks

Hi I wanted to ask you about promoting a Death Cafe.  Our main purpose is to educate the community on death and a place for individuals to talk about this subject.  We are a funeral home and we sponsor the event at our local coffee house.  We do use our advertisment avenues to promote the events in our local magazines and newspapers.  We are not using this to promote our business and we park our identities at the door, this is another avenue of community programs we support and sponsor in our area.  By using our logo in our ads, does this violate your guidelines?
