This Grief Thing
Wednesday 13 to Sunday 17 March and Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 March

This Grief Thing by Fevered Sleep is coming to Nottingham as part of a national tour between 13–24 March and will happen in shop Unit 8, Avenue A, Sneinton Market, supported by Dance4.

This Grief Thing invites people to think, talk and learn about grief. It’s for people who have experienced grief, and for people who haven’t. Regardless of our own experience or lack of experience with grief, many people find it almost impossible to talk about grief. We don’t know what to say, what to do, or how to act. So we stay silent, we pretend that grief doesn’t exist. This Grief Thing pushes against, by opening up conversations about grief, making it visible.

The shop will sell clothing, badges, bags and condolence cards which show words and phrases like ‘Make Space For Grief,’ and ‘Grief Is Like The Weather,’ to help start conversations. Sam Butler and David Harradine, the Artistic Directors of Fevered Sleep will also host a series of Grief Gatherings in the shop which aim to bring small groups of people together, using the items from the shop to help facilitate open discussions about grief.
