The Shrouded in Silence project was created to address the sensitive topic of death using empathy and creativity. It features artwork, talks, films, workshops and a podcast.

 

The project embraces the depth of our shared humanity, delving into the intricate tapestry of emotions and experiences that shape our existence. 

 

The resources provide insight into the project and can be used to support conversations around death, dying, and grief.
