Bodies and Death: how can we embrace death through rituals? (UrbanBodies)

November 3, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

- Free

Our University of the Streets Café public conversations are much like any you’d have with friends or family around a dinner table, except with more people, more points of view, and slightly more structure. Conversations are hosted by a volunteer moderator who is there to welcome everyone and keep things on track. To get things started, there’s a guest, or sometimes two, who get the ball rolling by sharing their ideas, experiences and questions. After that, it’s all up to the participants.

What are the ways we can prepare for, share our fears, and celebrate the end of life? What are the environmentally sensitive alternatives to conventional burial?

Art Hives’ Science Shop presents UrbanBodies : an exploration of what matters in our everyday lives and neighborhoods. This series of public art making conversational labs, held in collaboration with the University of the Streets Café program at Concordia University, will explore the theme of the body as it lives and dies, grows and ages, struggles and thrives in the urban environment.

Guests:
Kit Racette
Lilia Luna Gonzalez
