We’ve brought together a wide range of academics, makers & those working in the business of deathcare to give a fascinating series of short talks on death, dying and funerals over the course of a single afternoon.

The talks will explore visual design and mortality. Learn how Irish funerals are changing, what a green graveyard looks like, the heartbreaking story of 19th century Dublin post-mortem photography, meet the contemporary craftspeople creating special objects to memorialise the dead, and hear inside stories from those who work in the deathcare space.

Registration opens at 1.30pm. The first speaker will be on stage at 2pm and the event will finish up with a Death Cafe.
