The Art of Grief is an organisation offering a range of creative ways to honour death, grief and the loved ones who have died in our lives.
THE ART OF GRIEF is a small organisation set up in 2020 offering a range of creative ways to honour death, grief and the loved ones who have died in our lives. Trained as an artist and funeral celebrant I am passionate about creating an open culture where people feel able to talk about end of life, death or grief.
My hope is to break the stigma associated with death through artworks, podcasts and death cafes. I am inspired by culturally diverse grieving and burial practices, including Mexican Day of the Dead, Chinese Tomb Sweeping Day, the Irish tradition of Keening and Indonesian Toraja death rituals.
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. — Ansel Adams
