Upcoming Events

    There are many funeral industry and death related events held around Sydney each year. These are a few that I know of and think look particularly interesting or relevant.

Hidden Art Exhibition at Rookwood -- 21st Sept - 31st Oct
    Every year there is an art exhibition in Rookwood Cemetery, it is free and quite fun, seeing the different exhibits on display among the graves.  I particularly like how some incorporate that specific place of the cemetery within their artwork.

   On the last day they hold a little closing ceremony with videos and food, which was very fun and informative last year.

ESMP Open Day -- 26th Oct
    The 2012 Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park open day was a blast, I really had a great time and there was such a variety of stuff to see and do.  This is also one of the only funeral home open days I know of.

When  -  26th October, 11am to 2pm.
Where  -  Military Rd, Matraville

Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) -- 2nd November
    This is a new event, or at least one I have not heard of in Sydney before. It's a celebration of things related to death and the way life and death are so entangled. There will be a skull painting competition and more.

When  -  2nd November, 9am to 5pm.
Where  -  Gore Hill Oval/ParkCorner of Pacific Hwy and Reserve Rd, St Leonards.

Living with Our Dead -- 10th November
    Living with our dead is an event organised by a Sydney celebrant to remember and honour the deceased and bring the idea of death into an acceptable and public setting. I don't have any other information at this stage, so if you're interested follow the link below.
