Before I Die Festival
Running 11th-22nd May, this festival based in Cardiff includes a series of cross-arts events linked to the theme of death and dying, and also the celebration of life. Curated by Jenny Kitzinger, an academic at Cardiff University researching end-of-life issues, this festival will inspire, inform and raise debate about the rarely discussed topic that is our own deaths. Planned events include art exhibitions, film screenings, musical performances and a walking tour of Cathay’s cemetery. Practical help will also be on hand in the form of panel discussions and counselling sessions. Visit www.cardiff.ac.uk/beforeidie for more information.
