This Grief Thing invites people to think, talk and learn about grief. It takes place in a shop where people can have conversations, and buy clothing or objects.
It’s for people who have experienced grief, and those who haven’t. We’re living at a time when many people find death and grief – our own grief or other people’s – almost impossible to talk about. We don’t know what to say, what to do or how to act. So we stay silent, we pretend that grief doesn’t exist, or we hide it. This Grief Thing pushes against this, by opening up conversations about grief and making it visible.
Fevered Sleep will open a shop hosted by artistic directors Sam Butler and David Harradine. You can drop in to browse and chat at any time during the shop’s opening hours. They will also host a series of Grief Gatherings, small group conversations about grief, either in the shop or in community spaces. The project also includes a billboard and poster campaign, which asks ‘Can we talk about grief?’
To take part in the Grief Gatherings, or to host one, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 020 3815 6430/ 07493 750427
