Matt’s Funeral and Life celebration

Thursday, 24 November 2011


A self-empowered community brings its own aesthetic, its own feel, to a farewell event which is unique and authentic, where people can speak and sing and be still, and spend all the time they need. 

This one had it all, yes? 

Note how much this shares with Josh’s celebration of life event. If you haven’t seen that film yet, please drop everything and watch it now.

    Yes. Good on ’em. One kind of model, and the good thinking behind it summed up so clearly. I loved the emphasis on community capacity, not just the man himself (though clearly plenty of that too.)The funeral was for the people at it.
