Envisioning Personal Rituals for Death

A speculative workshop on designing your funeral experience.

 

I organized a futuring workshop to explore how people

I prompted participants to imagine their funeral, most importantly to imagine how they want their friends and families to experience. 

The workshop began with a group exercise. Participants wrote the words they associated  with funerals on the whiteboard. 

If you're interested in exploring your own funeral ritual, you can download the worksheet here.
