In a culture that doesn’t honor grief,
here’s a chance to discuss the impact after a death.

At Death Cafes across the world, people come together in a relaxed and safe setting to discuss death, drink tea and eat delicious cake. We think that this is a great way to spend some time and we're keen to support people to do it more. Learn more at the international website.

Please join us for Evanston's first-ever Death Cafe.
Influenced by the ideas of Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz, the objective of Death Cafe is "To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives". Hundreds of individuals across the world have taken part to date. 

“Loved this! Sometimes I think it's easier to talk about this topic with complete strangers, which I think can help open the door to talk about it with family and friends.”

Death Café offers you the opportunity to explore topics like:

  • What do you consider a “good” death?
  • What’s on your “before I die” list?
  • How do you open a discussion about final wishes with your family?
  • Whose death affected you the most and why
  • How do you convince others to respect your grief
  • Does faith help or complicate your attitude towards death
  • What would you like your legacy to be
  • Can you plan a fun funeral?

“I loved hearing everyone's views and ideas about death - I heard a lot of things I never considered before. Really gets you thinking, which I think is really the point. Thank you!”
