When Words are not Enough: Creative Responses to Grief - Jane Harris and Jimmy Edmonds
Authors Jane Harris and Jimmy Edmonds will be in discussion at our event on the 15th of March. Find out more here.
Everyone grieves for someone at some point in their lives. But how do we deal with the silence that often surrounds grief? How do we find ways to express painful feelings when words are not enough?
In this deeply personal and beautiful reflection on grief Jane Harris and Jimmy Edmonds draw on their own experience of loss, and how the death of their son Josh has led to a creative response that is more than word bound. The emphasis on 'continuing bonds' and their own way of maintaining a relationship with Josh, is both emotional and practical.
Echoed in the other case studies they illustrate how creativity can shape a future where the deceased still play a part even while physically absent and how this is a normal and restorative aspect of the grieving process.
