The Art of Living and Dying –

A group of women helping those facing life’s highs and lows with practical information and professional yet sensitive support.

York’s Dead Good Festival

A Festival for the Living 10th-19th May 2019

We recognise that, as a society, we’re not particularly good at talking about dying, death and bereavement. This festival will help people express themselves in different ways, whilst giving advice and support on a number of practical matters. Our festival is part of a network of events across the UK for Dying Matters Awareness Week.
