Modern Deathcare Expo
October 19 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The mission of Modern Deathcare Expo is education, empowerment and planning. We are committed to educating the public about the end-of-life options and alternatives that are available and connecting them with these resources. We are dedicated to reclaiming community-centred deathcare whereby families are empowered to enact their own end-of-life care if they choose. We believe in encouraging cultural re-engagement in dying, death and bereavement. We believe that death planning leads to a meaningful and transformational experience.
Our highly curated Vendor Marketplace has alternative deathcare information tables, services, products, and engaging interactive features. Meet your needs throughout the day in our Swan Song Lounge with music accompaniment and an art space for kids and adults alike. There will be high quality local food + beverage vendors that include vegan and gluten-free options. Gather and learn in our Speaker Gallery, unfolding throughout the day on the upper level. Thought-provoking sessions cover green burial, death planning, palliation at home, alternative funerals, care of the body as well as the advocacy and legalities within the modern deathcare movement.
Following the expo, join us under the stars around a fire at 7pm for a guided Fire Ritual. Release, mourn, or celebrate someone while being supported in community. No participation required.
Entry to the Modern Deathcare Expo and Fire Ritual are by donation.
