Death Cafe profile for Ángela Barraza

Location: Mexico

About Ángela Barraza:

I am an artist, interpreter and translator, currently working on a project for an alternative funeral home in Mexico City, and about to train to be an undertaker using ecological methods.

I will not use Death Cafe as a way of promotion of my project, I am just interested in the purpose of talking about death.

[How should I present myself at my first session? Should I omit information about my project?]

What brings you to Death Cafe?

I've been gradually approaching the subject of death, from a few years back. I am interested in creating a death positive community.

I've conducted a series of artistic workshops concerning death, and I feel comfortable as a facilitator.

What would you like your legacy to be?

I would like to leave a legacy of an alternative funeral home/cultural space that opens new options for people in Mexico concerning their deaths and of their loved ones. 

Thoughts for sharing:

"The purpose of death is the release of love".

Laurie Anderson
