Can I contact a speaker directly after the festival?

Most of our speakers and facilitators work in the public realm. We have included links to people’s websites, organisations and social media channels as appropriate. If you wish to contact anyone you’ve discovered as part of Good Grief, please do so using their own channels. View Facilitators.

I want to be part of Good Grief (speaker, supporter etc)

Thank you for your interest. Given the nature of the event, we have been inundated with ideas and promotion requests. Although the programme is full for this year, we hope to collaborate with as many of you as possible in future. We would love to stay in contact and will certainly keep you in the loop for future Good Grief events. Please share more details about your work with us via email here.

Who is behind Good Grief?

Good Grief is the concept of Dr Lucy Selman, an Associate Professor at the University of Bristol’s School of Population Health Sciences. Dr Lesel Dawson from the University of Bristol is the Arts and Culture Lead for the festival. The event director and co-curator is Aisling Mustan with support from a team of Bristol-based creatives.
