About the Topic
Grief, loss, death, and dying are natural parts of life, but they can also be some of the most difficult experiences we face. This open mic night is a space to share our stories, our feelings, and our reflections on these topics in a safe and supportive environment.
We believe that talking about grief and loss can help us to heal, and that listening to the stories of others can help us to feel less alone. We hope that this open mic night will be a space for community and connection, and that it will help us to create a more open and accepting conversation about these important topics.
