Festival Events 2017

Life, Death & Lilies

Place an illuminated lily in memory of a loved one as part of an exploration of death and bereavement.

1500 individual notes of remembrance will be displayed at an art installation in the form of a temporary memorial garden in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket, the King's Stables Road end. Members of the public will be able to pick up a lily at any of the pedestrian entrances to the Grassmarket. They will then be invited to walk to the memorial garden and install their flower.

The unusual tribute is being created as a practical translation of recent NHS Education Scotland-funded research into the training needs of health and care staff in issues relating to death and dying.

Wednesday 1 - Friday 3 November, 4.30pm - 7.30pm
Grassmarket, Edinburgh
