Living With Dying Exhibition

Leeds City Museum comes to Todmorden

Thursday 21.03.2024
7 – 9pm
Natural Endings, Rise Lane, Todmorden, OL14 7AA

Our next PUD Monthly event is on Thursday March 21. We are excited to host a visit from Adam Jaffer who is Curator, World Cultures at Leeds Museums and Galleries.

This May a new exhibition launches at Leeds City Museum entitled Living with Death: an exhibition exploring death, dying and bereavement

This exhibition invites visitors to discover how people experience death, grief and dying in different ways. Living with Death looks at how humans have developed knowledge and skills in response to life ending. We know that death affects everyone, but it is often difficult to talk about. The exhibition hopes to gently encourage conversation through personal stories, and objects from across the world and throughout history.A series of talks, workshops, and family-friendly events will complement the exhibition throughout the year.

For this Pushing Up Daisies event, Adam Jaffer, Curator, will be joining us to talk about the thinking behind the exhibition and associated events (running May 2024 to January 2025), the museum’s hopes and intentions, as well as bringing us a box of death related artefacts and sharing some images for a sneak peek before the exhibition begins!

He will then answer questions and share his knowledge in a Q & A session.

We are hugely grateful to Natural Endings for offering their space to us for this event and we hope you can join us. Though the evening is free, we ask you to register so we have an idea of numbers for planning. Please register here. Donations are welcomed to support future PUD events.

Refreshments will be available. We look forward to seeing you on the 21st!

PUD Monthly is a series of events encompassing any format that lends itself to the death-related themes being explored. An event may be a talk with Q&A, a short film followed by discussion, a themed group conversation or a workshop or performance.

We warmly welcome your event and theme suggestions by email (pushingupdaisiestod@gmail.com).
Let us know if you want to help us make these events happen by joining the small team of volunteers.
