Your Ultimate Portrait

For heaven’s sake, it’s your funeral. It should be your ultimate portrait and the celebration of your life.

Funeral Director Susanne Duijvestein focuses her work on sustainable alternatives to traditional funerals and what we truly leave behind. In this talk, Susanne details creative ways to design for death culture, discusses compassion and individualism in end-of-life ceremonies, and encourages the audience to consider our last-act impact on the planet.
