good life, good death, good grief

It Takes a Village: Exhibition Venues


This powerful and challenging new work features a series of portraits by Colin Gray exploring the concept that ‘if it takes a village’ to raise a child it also takes a range of people to look after someone who is dying and their family.

Based on a concept and interviews by the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care, the exhibition shares personal insights and experiences from the various perspectives of people who have cared for someone who’s dying or their family.
