We’re DEAD serious about coffee and cake… so we’re inviting you to join us on a coffee date with death!  

If you’ve ever wanted to discuss death, dying and loss in a welcoming, friendly space, come along to our Death Café at The Alex Hotel's cafe Mezzanine, just a short walk from the State Library (50 James Street) – brought to you by the Centre for Stories.

While enjoying a hot beverage and delicious cake at The Alex Hotel Cafe, you will meet new people whose ideas on death may challenge or excite a curious mind. Led by experienced death café facilitator and certified counsellor Dr Margaret Sealey, you’ll hear from several ‘disruptors’ throughout the event who will speak on their own fascinating personal journeys with death and life.

Ask questions, share lessons learned, and break the taboo of discussing death.
