DeadSocial will be running the ‘Dying Matters Awareness Week Pop-Up shop’ at the Collective Pop-Up, 69 Camden High Street, London once again this year. In 2013 the space played host to a number of events, workshops and meetups. This year organisations, charities and those working within the end of life sector are invited to propose their own events and ‘take over’ the space for periods at a time. The space will be made available for free during both the day (10am-5pm) and the evening (6pm-10.30pm).

About Dying Matters Awareness Week
We only get one chance to have our dying wishes met, that’s why the theme of the fifth annual Dying Matters Awareness Week is ‘Dying Matters: You only die once’. Dying Matters have a range of resources to help you get involved, including leaflets, posters, banners, advice on organising your own events and resources to help you engage with local media. More information about Dying Matters Awareness Week and the good work they carryout can be found at http://dyingmatters.org/YODO
DeadSocial enables us to create a series of messages. These can consist of text, images and video. They are saved and then only sent to our Facebook & Twitter account once we pass away. This free service launched at South by South West (SXSW) in March 2013 and are located in the United Kingdom.
