Every Woman's Place for Support, Connections and Community.
 

What happens when a person dies? This workshop will discuss death and dying specifically among the homeless population. Diane Gauthier, from the Calgary Homeless Foundation's Client Action Committee, will explore why it is important to talk about death and dying. She will also give an update on the progress of the Memorial Project (an effort to create a public space to grieve homeless individuals) and talk about the Longest Night of the Year.
At the end of this workshop, Diane will explain how you can contribute and support this cause. There will be opportunities throughout for questions and group discussion.
