Dead Calm: Honest Conversations About Death

In this series of conversations – curated and hosted by Hilary Harper – we’ll explore how we die, grieve and commemorate in Australia today.

Death. It’s often complicated, it’s sometimes cruel and it’s definitely compulsory.

In this series of conversations – curated and hosted by Hilary Harper – we’ll explore how we die, grieve and commemorate in Australia today. Can we learn to talk more constructively about death? What can we learn about death from other cultures? And what can people who work with the dead, and the dying, teach all of us about facing up to life’s one certainty?

Let’s set aside the euphemism, and tackle the taboos head-on – with some forthright discussions about the process, the mystery and the meaning of death today.
