death: the human experience

Take a moment from your busy life.

Take some time to reflect on death…

What does it mean to you?

How does it feel for others?

The journey we all will take affects the way we live

Let’s talk about death.

As a society we are reluctant to talk about death and dying.
death: the human experience is about helping to start that conversation.

This exhibition is supported by:

symbols of death

Across the world and throughout time people have created symbols and euphemisms for death. They help the living to recognise or try to understand what death is. They are also used to help us distance ourselves from death and its reality.

Mark Twain

“I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it”
