Have You Heard of Coffin Clubs

This group of rebellious seniors have found a unique way to prepare for death.

 

Watch How New Zealanders Add Life to Death with 'Coffin Clubs'

 

Building their own coffins sparks creativity, saves money and offers agency

 

After attending so many funerals that rarely reflected the vibrant lives of friends and family they were meant to honor, a group of fed-up older people in Rotorua, New Zealand created what they call a Coffin Club.

 

In a short documentary video (with a whimsical musical number) from Loading Docs, members of the Kiwi Coffin Club gather to construct and decorate their own future coffins. They also have tea and support each other through the process of aging, proving that preparing for death doesn’t have to be grim and dark.
