The Groundswell Project Australia is calling on Australians to ‘get dead set’ around death and dying, as part of its annual Dying to Know campaign.
An information sharing session will take place at Manning Regional Art Gallery on Monday 15 August from 10.30am to 12pm to encourage end of life discussion.
The event is an opportunity to ask questions and gain knowledge to ensure your end of life choices are consistent with how you want to be remembered.
Nationally recognised spiritual and business mentor, Shane McLeay, will emcee the event and guest speakers including Jennifer Perino from National Association for Loss and Grief (NALAG), Sarah Julian, a local marriage and funeral celebrant, and Tim Jux from Edstein Creative will share insights from their respective industries.
Local funeral directors and Council’s cemeteries team will also be on hand to answer any questions.
There will be morning tea and everyone will leave with an information bag with resources that will encourage compassionate conversations with loved ones.
This year’s theme of ‘get dead set’ asks people of all ages and stages of life to overcome their fears or discomfort around death and take action on end of life planning in a way that is right for them.
