In 2020, when our events were cancelled and we were quarantined in our homes, we saw that people longed for a virtual experience that spoke to a sense of community, supported a good cause, and was most of all fun. The Mortals’ Market was born.
A virtual marketplace that celebrates the diversity, artistry, and spirit in and around the Death Positive Movement, the Mortals’ Market aims to not only support independent artists and creators impacted by the hardships present since 2020 but also to raise funds for those doing good work in the death positive community. The market was conceived and hosted by death positive artist, Meagan Meli and Ask a Mortician producer and writer, Louise Hung to bring together a carefully curated group of artists whose creativity, activism, and vision enriched the conversations around death.
In the market’s inaugural year, we raised funds for Self Help Graphics. and in 2021, the market helped to raise funds for our Death Positive grant program, The Good Death Fellowship.
