Dying to talk project
Dying to talk is a multi-media project exploring societies changing attitudes towards death and dying through informative, audio, video and written features.
Showcasing events such as death cafe, it explores how people around us are participating in free-flowing conversations about a subject that is often considered taboo.
Other content will reveal the experiences of those working within the ‘death industry’ including ministers, funeral photographers and alternative death advocates revealing how their professions have changed both their attitudes and approach towards death, dying and life in general.
Video content will also investigate the importance of a funeral to the grieving process with key interviews with those who help to arrange our final farewell.
Extra content will provide in-depth reviews and information on events that help to naturalise and publicise death and dying through interesting artwork.
All multi-media content will be published on this blog between January and March with the blog dedicated to exploring the topic both sensitively and informatively.
I’m a final year student currently studying multi-media journalism at Bournemouth University.The project contributes to my final degree mark and I am hugely passionate and dedicated to showcasing the topic of death and dying in a refreshing and informative way.
