More recently, Portable this speculative future, which incorporates many of the ideas from our workshop.

Participants got down with the ghouls, ghosts, rituals and experiences of death, co-created the ideal space and place for healthy dying, and explored how we might improve Melbourne’s death-ability score and become renowned as the perfect place for a gentle departure.
