About this event

Using Death Conversation Game, founder Angela Fama will be co-hosting this open discussion on death with paramedic Christa Zaganas and artist and community advocate Jerald L. White.

WHY TALK ABOUT DEATH?

Personal death is a topic often avoided in social settings. If you'd like to change that - whether you are new to the conversation or returning - we welcome you to join us!

Many of us think about death in a number of ways (especially during this pandemic): our own or another's, the unknown, loss and grief that can come with change, impermanence and the momental and/or situational deaths that happen daily... maybe you're considering advanced care planning decisions, wanting to expand your understandings on death, or are focused on one specific monumental loss - it could be you haven't actively thought on death and are generally curious about what a conversation on death would entail - this is a space to talk about some of these things.

The subject's discussed are defined organically by those who chose to join each time, through conversation and how one interprets the question card's meanings. It's always a different group, a community is growing: some that have never had a conversation on death before and those that are, or are becoming, seasoned. There's never pressure to talk about subjects you don't want to discuss, and, each time the questions are presented, depending on your mood or the day, your answers may change. We work to co-create safe spaces for sharing, and listening, too and with, each other - as it is, in the moment.

WHO ARE WE?

Angela Fama is an interdisciplinary artist, photographer, and aspiring death doula. She currently resides with humble acknowledgement on the unceded territories of the Musqueum, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh nations (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 with the project: What Is Love. As a natural result, an understanding of how irrevocably intertwined ove and death are, which helped inspire the need to create Death Conversation Game. 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 Downtown Eastside of Vancouver (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. Both Christa and Angela have separately completed the End-of-Life Doula program at Douglas College.

Jerald L. White is a New Orleans, LA and Anderson, IN based artist and community advocate, also known as "Bottletree." He is the founder of Charitable Film Network, Deep South by Suroeste, and the New Orleans Loving Festival.

Jerald and Angela met through collaboration on the New Orleans Loving Festival, with his being a supporter, contributor, and co-facilitator of the What Is Love project by sitting for the project, providing multiple host spots and co-creating the return showing of the completed works in New Orleans.

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.
