‘Dying.exhibits’ is an exhibition series on end of life, inviting participants to think about their relationship with life and death. By holistically engaging with life, including death, ‘Dying.exhibits’ becomes a catalyst for getting comfortable with the uncomfortable and encourages us to start talking about what truly matters. The exhibition serves as an opportunity to engage with diverse perspectives and participate in open discussion about death and dying through engaging art and design works and participatory experiences.
The ‘Dying.series’ was founded by Maria Cheung, CEO at Taboo Health, participatory designer and researcher Karen Oikonen and Dr. Kate Sellen, Director of the Health Design Studio at OCAD University. Over the past three years, the ‘Dying.series’ has attracted over 5000 attendees, 26 speakers, including 4 opening and keynote speakers in the disciplines of design and healthcare and 29 exhibiting artists and designers.
