Death and mourning often lead to rituals that acknowledge and assist with loss and grief. Creativity through art practices that include visual art, dance and song, enrich and comprise ritual that brings empathic connectivity between people and communities, bringing solace and comfort, together with acceptance of and appropriate closure to the life cycle within a wider universal context.

Join Jenny Briscoe-Hough from the Port Kembla Community Centre and Tender Funerals, visual artist Michele Elliot, Scotia Monkivitch from Creative Recovery Network, and Dr Richard Walley OAM as they share their perspectives on Ritual and Empathy gained through their experiences within different cultural frameworks.

Presented in association with Perth Festival.
