Chances are that if you stumble upon my website, you’re probably looking for information about Death Salon. I’m the director for this group of academics, artists, death professionals, and artists working with the themes of mortality and mourning in our culture, spawned from The Order of The Good Death. We’ve got some of the brightest minds in their fields converging on cities worldwide for these events, and we can’t wait to share some history, culture, and art with you. Here’s a video from Death Salon UK that shows what our events are like.
