The Bucket Project presents Dying Matters Awareness Week in Liverpool.
They are trying to keep the topic of death alive and work with the community to make talking about death, dying and loss less of a taboo. There are a number of events scheduled throughout the week starting with the launch of Liverpool’s first community chalk wall. This will take place in the beautiful India Buildings on Monday 13 May.
The chalk wall is part of an international initiative called “Before I die, I want to…” and more information can be found on this at: http://beforeidie.cc/ Pictures will be uploaded to their site and sit alongside other chalk walls from across the world.
There is also have a conference around community engagement and end of life, on Tuesday 14 May, with Professor John Ellershaw as the main speaker and our information drop-in sessions are happening across the city. It’ at the drop-in sessions where you will be able to get a free will, discuss organ donation, get advice on planning a funeral or find out more about The Bucket Project.
Events are also being promoted through social media sites and you are invited to come along and join in. For more information about Dying Matters please visit: http://dyingmatters.org/
