The Departure


The Departure is (currently) a transient art space created by artist and death literacy advocate Hayley West.  

The Departure is dedicated to death and all that remains; a space to ponder your own mortality, educate yourself on end of life matters, and encounter death themed artworks and events.

The Departure believes in empowering the community by sharing practical knowledge through exchange and generosity.
