Compassionate Communities Art Project - Permission to Die

Compassionate Communities Art Project

Presented by the City of Albany in partnership with WA Primary Health Alliance, funded by the Brandenburg Foundation.

Permission To Die
Ruth Maddren & James Gentle

We struggle to communicate about the looming challenges, the fears, the imminent event. How can we speak about such a sensitive subject together?

Dying To Know Day is a national event that encourages communities and individuals to activate connections and curiosities by thinking, talking about and exploring the conversation around death. Artists Ruth Maddren and James Gentle will be facilitating and providing spaces through workshops to talk about end of life plans and explore the silent realms of death in a way that eases the unknown.

The Exhibition will be launched at 1pm on Sunday 3rd August at Vancouver Art Centre (all welcome) and will be open throughout August
