Description

Unspoken: What Will Become of Me? in Mitchell Shire

15-16 August 2018

Broadford Hall, 18 Murchison Street. Broadford


What are the obstacles stopping Victorians from discussing their end of life wishes, making plans and sharing this information with their family and carers?

We know some people are reluctant to think about declining capacity and eventual death and there is confusion about the concepts and terminology used which might explain the low uptake of Advance Care Planning. People may not also be exposed to the idea of palliative care, or fully understand the parameters of voluntary assisted dying legislation.

Is it the conversation, the information, or something else? Maybe it’s easier to not think about it.

Health Issues Centre together with COTA Victoria is pleased to present ‘Unspoken: What Will Become of Me?’ at Broadford Hall in the Mitchell Shire from Wednesday 15th to Thursday 16th August 2018. ‘Unspoken’ uses art and performance to generate awareness, understanding and action around end of life conversations in a social, interactive space.

The event gently explores the themes of ageing, declining capacity, diminished autonomy and a sense of identity and uses humour to create a comfortable setting for everyone to engage. Once visitors have seen the installations and performance, they will have an opportunity to attend a peer-educated session facilitated by COTA Victoria where they can ask follow up questions and provide feedback.


Three events will be held across the two days. Please see below for further information on session times:
