Dying Matters are currently running their reflective “Final Tweets” project ahead of and during the annual ‘Dying Matters Awareness Week’. To participate simply create twitter message whilst pretending that it would be the last Twitter message (tweet) that you would ever send.
Once completed use the hashtag #FinalTweets and it will be included and reviewed amongst peers and the wider twitter community. You can also send your tweets directly to Dying Matters:
- - By post, send your Final Tweet to: Sarah Stone, Final Tweet, Dying Matters Coalition, The Fitzpatrick Building, 188-194 York Way, London, N7 9AS.
DeadSocial will be running a pop up shop during Dying Matters Awareness week. One of the offerings provided at the space (10am-5pm Monday - Saturday) will be to have a professional video footage recorded and edited for free. The video maker and photographer Tugba Tirpan will be allocated a private area at the back of the popup shop. In this area the general public can sit down and have a video message created. Each person will decide if they want their video to be public now or if the video should only be seen once they have passed away.
Video content may include; videos to be played at the person’s funeral, videos to assist an (already written) will, final goodbye videos, videos to be played at the persons wake and/or videos created to be sent out post-death using DeadSocial.
For anyone who wants to have their ‘Final Tweets’ to be recorded and sent out on Twitter come to down and let us know. If you do not have a twitter account we will happily set one up for you in the coffee shop (or send it out on our own twitter account, it’s up to you).
Whatever you would like to have filmed come down to the popup coffee shop at 69 Camden High Steeet between 10am-5pm and speak to Tugba, she will ensure that you have a fantastic video.
