The Wake Up to Dying Project
Traveling Exhibit Event Schedule
July 12-17, 2016
Fletcher Free Library (235 College St.) & College St. Congregational Church (265 College)
The Wake Up to Dying Project aims to shift our cultural perspective on death from fear and avoidance toward acceptance – by inviting people to acknowledge death, be prepared for it, and live more fully having done so. We do this by gathering and sharing first-person audio stories about death, dying and life. We bring these stories, along with related art and hands-on engagement opportunities, to communities in a creative traveling exhibit.
For the second year in a row, our innovative end-of-life exhibit, complete with big white tents, will once again appear outside of the Fletcher Free Library, right in the heart of downtown Burlington from July 14–17. Workshops, panels and chats will be held at the Congregational Church and the library July 12–17.
Visitors to the Traveling Exhibit can:
- listen to audio stories about death, dying and life,
- add your bucket list goals to our massive chalkboard,
- learn about and take away end-of-life resources,
- attend a workshop, panel or “death chat”
- bring what you learn and experience back to your home and community.
All events are free and open to the public
