Generously supported by Rethink Ireland’s Impact Fund for Munster, we have four safe spaces across Munster – Limerick, Mallow, Bantry and Cahirciveen – where people can have open and creative chats about loss, gently exploring how compassion connects, and share some ‘deadly conversation’ as part of our Compassionate Culture Network (CCN).

But what exactly is a ‘deadly conversation’ CNN? Well, it’s a bit like a grief café where we try to remove any fear and anxiety around words such as ‘grief’ and ‘loss’. Each session is facilitated by an artist and support worker who use creativity to try and break through the block some people have when it comes to talking about their grief. 

There’ll be things to doodle or fidget with. There’ll be some creative explorations and prompts. You can talk. You can not talk. You can simply listen and be listened to. Or you can simply pop in for a chat over a cuppa!

We are very grateful to Rethink Ireland, the Department of Rural and Community Development via the Dormant Accounts Fund. With special thanks to all the generous donors, including the Parkes Family, the Sunflower Charitable Foundation, Ei Electronics, and Community Foundation for Ireland.
