On Death and Dying
Panel discussion with Leah Kaminsky, Steven Amsterdam, Rodney Syme.
Formerly taboo conversations about death and dying have been encouraged by recent memoirs on the subject (including Paul Kalanithi’s When Breath Becomes Air and Cory Taylor’s Dying) and the current debate about potential voluntary-assisted dying legislation in Victoria. This panel of writers and medical practitioners will explore how we deal (or not) with death, the choices we have and the choices we want and what the future may look like as we open ourselves up to exploring this issue that affects us all.
