The Wake Up to Dying Project

Traveling Exhibit

What would happen if we paid more attention to the fact that we die?

The Wake Up to Dying Project is excited to be coming to Brattleboro this summer! For four event-packed days, from Thursday, June 25th through Sunday, June 28th, our traveling exhibit will be in place at the River Garden, 157 Main Street, in downtown Brattleboro.

The Wake Up to Dying Project aims to shift our cultural perspective on death from fear and avoidance toward familiarity – by inviting people to acknowledge death, be prepared for it, and live more fully for having done so. We do this by gathering and sharing first person audio stories about death, dying, and life. We bring these stories, along with related art and hands-on engagement opportunities, to communities in a creative traveling exhibit.

Visitors to the Traveling Exhibit will listen to professionally produced audio stories, engage with interactive art installations, learn about and take away end-of-life resources, attend a workshop or community discussion with local leaders in end-of-life care, and bring what they learn and experience back to their home and community.

Be a part of this unique event:

  • Save the dates and plan to attend the event. Bring a friend or loved one with you to share in this unique experience.
  • Volunteer! Our events run on volunteer power. To volunteer or for more information, email or call (802) 522-7818.
  • Help us spread the word about the event coming to town. Your support makes all the difference!
