Each month, we share free events taking place --in Masscahusetts and online--that offer inspiration, encouragement, and education on a range of end-of-life topics.
The Internet and the End of Life - Online Event
Wednesday, June 2nd
7:00 -8:00 a.m. EDT
People living with a terminal illness, their loved ones and carers, and those who have been bereaved are increasingly turning to online spaces for information, help and support. But these spaces are not well understood, even as the Covid-19 pandemic has made the role of online spaces in supporting people through dying and grief profoundly more urgent. Join Demos and The Centre for the Art of Dying Well for a panel discussion as we launch our final report, The Internet and End of Life. The panel will discuss the future of the relationship between online spaces and support at the end of life. For more information, please click here.

Shifting Tides: From Caregiver to Survivor - Online Event
Tuesday, June 15th
12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EDT When a loved one falls ill, the family members who take on the role of caregiver experience a complete shift in life as they knew it, from the emotional stress to the physical changes such as lack of sleep, anxiousness, and distractedness. After the loss, a caregiver's world shifts once again; some of these experiences will persist, some will intensify, and new changes will emerge. During this webinar, we will discuss this period of transition from caregiving to bereaved as well as ways to cope and support yourself through this process. To register for this free event, please click here.
Music of the Soul: What Music Teaches Us About Coping with Grief - Online Event
Tuesday, June 22nd
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. EDT
Even after a loved one dies, love lives on and the bond continues. If there’s a person, time, or place you’d like to visit or connect with, what music would take you there?
