6200 Stanley Park Drive
Vancouver, BC

Reminiscent of the tradition of telling stories around the campfire, DeathPicnic brings the public together with some of Vancouver’s most noted scholars and authors telling stories about things they work with, live with and love … and that die.Stories range from the death of ideas and empires, humans, pets and other animals, to the death of stars.

DeathPicnic is an event for the intellectually curious, where storytellers share their experiences observing how things live and die and their perspectives and reflections on death’s meaning for life. The public is invited to bring a picnic and spread out a blanket in Stanley Park for an inspiring evening of stories on the last taboo. The stories are free and everyone is welcome.
