A new project that invites people to think, talk and learn about grief


This Grief Thing on Friday 9th - Monday 19th November 2018

At a time when many people find death and grief almost impossible to talk about, This Grief Thing aims to open up conversations about grief and make it visible.

Over the next year, Fevered Sleep is taking over a series of empty shops around the UK and presenting them as places where people can come to talk or buy clothing and objects or attend a Grief Gathering to talk about grief.

Our shop will be in Manchester from 9-18 November 2018, at the Whitworth, The University of Manchester, Oxford Rd, Manchester, M15 6ER

Hosted by Fevered Sleep’s artistic directors Sam Butler and David Harradine, each temporary shop offers specially designed clothing, badges, bags and condolence cards at a pay what you want price, that can help conversations about grief to start.

Grief Gatherings
We'll also be hosting three small group conversations about grief on:
Monday 12 November, 10-11.30am (*at St Mary's Hospital)
Thursday 15 November, 6.30 - 8pm the Whitworth
Friday 16 November, 10-11.30am the Whitworth
