Urban Death Project

Spend a couple hours with us pondering your mortality with Seattle-based designer Katrina Spade, the mastermind behind the Urban Death Project.

Like it or not, you're gonna die. What's going to happen to you after that? Spend a couple hours with us pondering your mortality with Seattle-based designer Katrina Spade, the mastermind behind the Urban Death Project, and Brad Lichtenstein, ND, BCB, faculty member at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health and facilitator at Bastyr's Death and Cupcakes events.

In true Seattle fashion, Spade's Urban Death Project is a plan to take compost to the next level: recycling ourselves. Spade will walk us through her plans for the Urban Death Project's Recomposition Center, planned to open by 2023. You'll learn about the science of how the center will process our bodies, what families can expect in their visit to the center, and why Spade is proposing a new alternative to traditional death practices in the first place. Then, Lichtenstein will guide you through an honest discussion of your own death, and how to plan and prepare for the inevitable.
