This Grief Thing at Sneinton Market Avenues

March 12th 2019

This Grief Thing is a project by Fevered Sleep which invites people to think, talk and learn about grief. Fevered Sleep are working with Dance4 to bring the project to Nottingham.

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, or we hide it.

The shop is hosted by Sam Butler and David Harradine, the artistic directors of Fevered Sleep, and sells clothing, badges, bags and condolence cards which show words and phrases like ‘Make Space For Grief,’ and ‘Grief Is Like The Weather.’ These phrases can help conversations about grief to start. Everything is priced on a pay what you want basis.

Anyone is welcome to the calm shop space to connect to the project and think, talk and learn about grief.

This Grief Thing is a project by Fevered Sleep inviting people to think, talk and learn about grief and encourage conversation around this. Fevered Sleep are working with Dance4 to bring the project to Nottingham. As part of the project, Grief Gatherings will be held in a temporary shop. You can attend with friend or family members, with colleagues or on your own. There is no obligation to talk, people are welcome to just sit and listen.

Fevered Sleep also encourage people to host their own ‘Grief Gatherings.’ These gatherings might be at home, at work, in a cafe or down the pub. Each host will be given a box that contains items from the shop, some thoughts about grief, and suggestions on how to facilitate a conversation about it. If you’re interested in hosting your own ‘Grief Gathering’ please contact Louisa or visit the shop for more information. Grief Gatherings in the shop are FREE to attend but a ticket must be reserved by contacting Louisa.
