The Art of Death Expo starts today in Bellingham, Washington. It runs to October 11.
By using many different points of interest as access points or doorways into the board subject of Death and Dying, the Expo offers an opportunity for people of all comfort levels, learning styles, beliefs, cultures and understanding to enter into the subject with curiosity and comfort.
The Arts can open the doors of curiosity and awareness more than any other access point. The Expo uses music, poetry, dance, painting, sculpture, films, storytelling; in conjunction with the more logical-linear formatted presentations, alongside interactive, hands-on learning, spiritual and cultural expressions and healthcare professional education programs.
