Dr Lucy Selman is Founding Director of Good Grief, Bristol. The festival brings together her professional interests and personal experience: Lucy is a researcher specialising in palliative and end of life care, and has experienced close bereavements. Most recently, her second daughter was stillborn in 2018. This festival was motived by this loss, and her belief that through sharing experiences and knowledge we can find solace and support. Lucy has written on stillbirth for the BMJ.

Her research and publications over the past 15 years have mainly focused on psychosocial and spiritual aspects of the illness experience; decision-making and communication; family care-giving and bereavement; and widening access to services.
