Death and Dying at the Powerhouse

  • by Volunteer Hub
  • February 1, 2017

Magical thinking, derangement, hauntings, superstitions, myths, celebrations and rituals.

In subtle and not so subtle ways our reactions to loss reflect an social anthropology of death and dying – of how we make sense of death, and life.

If you are in the Sydney area you might be interested in these events at the Powerhouse Museum:
