17OPEN | Ellie Harrison: The Crossing

Free event - drop in 
How would you like to be remembered? How would you like others to celebrate your life? Would you prefer a quiet ceremony for your loved ones, with your favourite music and readings? Or a wild party with live music and fireworks lighting up the night sky? Is there a particular song that you feel sums up the life you’ve lived or a gift that you’d like to leave behind? Would you like your ashes to be shot into space or to be buried in a favourite spot that’s meaningful to you? Or is the answer none of the above?

The Crossing is a conversation about the different ways that we can say goodbye. Drop in during the afternoon to meet artist Ellie Harrison, and you will be guided through a series of questions to help you to imagine your ideal funeral. The answers to these questions are then recorded in a specially created booklet, which can be customised using a series of beautiful hand-drawn illustrations.
