Death Cafe

PRESENTED ON FEB 28, 2014
IN BLUE MOUNTAINS @ VOL 9

Hayley West introduces the discussion group Death Cafe: where people can talk about death in a relaxed and confidential environment and eat cake too! There is rarely discussion about post-death plans, and Hayley encourages people to think about all post-life possibilities, which she has learned from Death Cafe talks.

Remembering Forward: talking to children about death

BY HEATHER H
@ VOL 15 ON JUN 03, 2017

Heather H has a keen (and strange) interest in how to best support children come to learn and process news of a sudden death. In her presentation, she talks about how amazed she is by how wise children are and humbled by their capacity to teach adults, particularly if we create space and safety for them to do so.

The View Behind the Cafe

BY JAMES LUCKETT
@ VOL 32 ON AUG 17, 2017

"Every week there are new items, objects, things, stuff that people abandon that people put out, leave out, the flotsam and jetsam of the modern age. It's just back there, new stuff all the time.

In The View Behind the Cafe from PechaKucha Night Dayton Vol. 32, James Luckett observes the parking lot behind his workplace.  His photos transform the invisible into new compositions, from abandoned dolls to shadows on concrete.

How a Cafe Can Change a Community

BY OSAMU SAKAI
@ VOL 152 ON NOV 22, 2017

Architect Osamu Sakai along with his wife, also a designer, helped save a public housing complex from demolition last year in the town of Sakura, Tochigi Prefecture. They’ve since established a cafe and community center in a corner of a housing complex that, after renovating, they are now tasked with activating by curating gatherings, activities, and workshops to harmonise with local environment and community. In this presentation Osamu will suggest how projects such as their cafe can help to find solutions to problems many rural cities in Japan face, such as population reduction, traffic congestion, and beyond.

建築家酒井理さんはデザイナーの奥様と一緒に、栃木県さくら市の団地集合住宅の一角をリノベーションして、地域の交流発信基地となる素敵なカフェを運営しています。自然や生活に溶け込むカフェのスタイルや活動には、人口減や交通問題など、地方都市だけでなく将来の日本が向き合う課題への解決ヒントが隠れています!
