Even the wisest of elders can be rendered mute by the topic of death, but that hasn't prevented St Martins Youth Arts Centre from kicking off a new series of public discussions with an investigation into the Great Perhaps.
Children on Death will see four children aged from nine to 17 articulating their thoughts and experiences on mortality for an hour-long event at The Wheeler Centre on June 12.
The free event is the culmination of an intense 18-month period of development that has seen St Martins working with a diverse group of young people, and will
mark the beginning of a series of public outcomes including a similar conversation addressing the issue of masculinity in July.
