About this Event

Using Death Conversation Game, founder Angela Fama will be co-facilitating this open discussion on death with Christa Zaganas and Jeff Petry.

WHY TALK ABOUT DEATH?

Personal death's a topic often avoided in social settings. If you'd like to change that, come and join us! Whether you are new to the conversation or a returning conversationalist, you are welcome!

Many of us are thinking about death in a number of ways: our own or another's, loss in many ways through this pandemic and all the personal and situational deaths that are happening as a result, grief.... maybe you're considering advanced care planning decisions, wanting to expand understandings on death, thinking about all the momental deaths that happen in a day... maybe you're curious. Whatever it is, you are welcome! The subject's discussed are guided by the cards yet defined organically by those who join each time through conversation and how they choose to read the questions.

BENEFITS FROM TALKING ABOUT DEATH

- Expanding knowledge

- Changing relationships

- Inspiration to seek answers + further explore

WHO ARE WE?

Angela Fama is an interdisciplinary artist from Tennessee, Ottawa, and Zimbabwe currently humbly residing, with acknowledgement, in the unceded territories of the Musqueum, Squamish and Tsleil-Watuth nations (known to some as Vancouver BC). In addition to a near-death experience over 10 years ago, Angela was inspired to discuss death more openly after she drove across North America discussing love with over 300 individuals (What Is Love). Through this project, love and death showed her how irrevocably intertwined they are and helped inspired her to create the Death Conversation Game and continue in the conversations. If you’d like to know more about why Angela like's to talk about death, please watch her TEDx talk: How Talking About Death Can Make You Happy.

Christa Zaganas is a paramedic and former mental health worker in the DTES who loves walking her dear dog, Ivy. Christa and Angela have known each other for over twenty years, within which they've discussed death many times, one-on-one and in other group facilitations. Each have completed the End-of-Life Doula program at Douglas College.

Jeff Petry is a documentary filmmaker whose work has given him the opportunity to work with many people and their stories. As an aspiring Death Doula, he has recently completed the End of Life Doula program and continues to be a student of how we tell our stories, how we listen, and the depth of meaning that this connection can produce (IMDb).

THIS IS A RESPECTFUL INTERSECTIONAL ENVIRONMENT

This workshop aims to offer a safe space to personally share in an all-inclusive Intersectional feminist anti-ableist environment of mutually respectful folk. All ages, class, race, and/or gender are welcome.

Let's talk about death... together!
