inter|section

inter|section seeks to define, develop and deliver a new, modern and humane funeral culture for the modern age.

Funeral services and funeral culture is outdated. In light of an ageing population in the Western world, the issue of Death and its rituals comes to the fore. Our contemporary, urban, occupied lives mean that the burial of a loved one, or preparations for one’s own afterlife is often hurried, toilsome or an afterthought. Inter|section wishes to provide an all-encompassing service to modern individuals and families that would bring committal and commemoration into the twenty-first century. Inter|section would transform the somber, ‘Victorian’ morbidity of the current funereal practice into a sophisticated, hygienic and compassionate celebration of life.
