This exhibition is an online version of the smaller Dying Matters Week exhibition that took place at Leicester Cathedral on the 8th-12th May 2017. This year, Dying Matter’s asks, What can you do? This exhibition, like the Continuing Bonds project more generally, explores how engagement with death practices of the past can help us open up discussions of this taboo topic in the present.
Please click on an image to enlarge it, and leave us your thoughts on the questions that we pose under ‘poster’: What legacy will you leave? What do you want (in death)? What is respectful treatment of bones? How can you help the elderly and infirm? How could you help someone who has lost a child?
Can talking about death in the past help us talk about death in the present?
