Dying Matters - A Community display at Leeds City Museum
16 Dec - 30 July 2017
Death is perhaps the one experience that unites people the world over.
But even though every person experiences death and dying, we can often shy away from talking about it.
By exploring objects related to death from a range of cultures, from an Egyptian shabti to a Victorian funeral cart, this exhibition seeks to start conversations and to encourage visitors to think about, and plan for, their own end of life.
The exhibition is part of the national Dying Matters initiative which promotes public awareness of dying, death and bereavement. You can find out more by visiting www.dyingmatters.org
Please be aware that this exhibition addresses issues of a sensitive nature.
