Melbourne: The world’s most death-able city

Saturday 25 May, 2pm - 4pm

Melbourne: The world's most death-able city

Melbourne has long been ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities - but faced with an ageing population and increased rates of mortality, can Melbourne also become the world’s most death-able city?

Discover the meaning of a ‘good death’ and co-design the city’s deathly future in this interactive workshop with digital design firm Portable. Get down with the ghouls, ghosts, rituals and experiences of death – and create the ideal space and place for healthy dying. Explore how we might improve Melbourne’s death-ability score and become renowned as the perfect place for a gentle departure.
