Death is perhaps the one experience that unites people the world over. But even though every person experiences death and dying, we can often shy away from talking about it. The curators and community team at Leeds Museums and Galleries have linked up with the Leeds steering group of the national Dying Matters initiative to bring this topic to the fore for a seven month display in the Leeds Gallery at Leeds City Museum. The topic of death and dying is a very sensitive one, so we are working hard to deal with it appropriately, and promote positive debate. The Friends of Lawnswood Cemetery will already be aware of many of the issues.
