Event description

Description

When author and journalist Sarah Murray’s father died, his last request prompted Sarah to explore how – across centuries and cultures – we commemorate our end.
Using colourful images from around the world, Sarah’s talk will introduce the astonishing variety and beauty with which humans celebrate their dead. As part of her research, she even went to Ghana to commission her own fantasy coffin.
Sarah’s exploration took her on a series of remarkable journeys around the world. But this was a very personal quest: for in her travels, she was also seeking inspiration for her own eventual send-off.
