Good Grief Theme

Alice Roberts, Chair, Good Grief Bristol

Talks + Lectures

People deal with grief in their own way, every day. Join us at an event to meet artists, authors and academics whose work touches upon grief. Discussions include Grief is my Superpower (with Mark Lemon) and A Conversation on Climate Grief. Lectures include Grief in Popular Culture, Memorialisation Tattoos, and Grief After Substance Misuse. Discover the inspiration for writers such as Nikesh Shukla (The Good Immigrant), Rachel Clarke (Dear Life) and Cathy Rentzenbrink (A Manual for Heartache). Talking about death can be life-affirming, as Anna Lyons and Louise Winter, the duo behind Life.Death.Whatever, will reveal. Come to talk and share or simply to listen.

Venues: University of Bristol and Colston Hall
