Qeepr Social Memorials teams up with death professionals, Caitlin Doughty and Lauren LeRoy for a roundtable discussion on death and dying. The talk will be streamed live via Google+ and Youtube on March 12th at 4pm EST.
Social memorial platform and death positive community leaders, Qeepr, will be hosting the first edition of #Talkdeath, a live online roundtable discussion with noted funeral professionals. The panel discussion taking place on March 12th, 2015 at 4pm EST/1pm PST will be broadcast on Google+ and streamed live via YouTube.
Qeepr announced New York Times Best Seller, mortician and founder of The Order of the Good Death, Caitlin Doughty as a member of their panel. Twenty Five year old Funeral Director and founder of the Little Miss Funeral Blog, Lauren LeRoy will be the second member of Thursday’s panel.
Qeepr founder, Mandy Benoualid announced that “the #Talkdeath Roundtable discussion was founded on the principle of death positivity.” She explains that “death and dying is still a taboo subject in the Western world and the public is uncomfortable discussing something we all face. Whether it is about coming to terms with our own death, coping with the loss of a relative, or simply asking questions about funeral practices, we lack a platform and community to speak with.”
The #Talkdeath web series was inspired by the international movement of Death Cafes, and hopes to be a venue wherein death professionals and the general public can come together in conversation. According to the Qeepr team, #Talkdeath aims to change the common idea that people should only speak with death professionals when they are forced to do so through circumstance.
The #Talkdeath Roundtable discussion with Caitlin Doughty and Lauren LeRoy can be streamed live via Google+ and YouTube on March 12th at 4pm EST. The public can still ask their questions to the panel via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram by including the hashtag ‘#talkdeath’.
