    Each year CCANSW members and the communities they serve hold special remembrance, celebration, promotional and arts events.

    Yet all too often we only hear about them when they are over. We'd like to change that.

    This year we want to begin to help you get the message out about those special events by setting up an active, vibrant and current Community Events Diary

  • From the Adelaide Advertiser:

    Death isn’t usually a topic of discussion at the dinner table, but the Adelaide Cemeteries Authority is about to change that with its second Death Over Dinner experience.

    The event, held in the West Tce Cemetery, aims to normalise the idea of death with guest speakers from different cultures and religions, as well as Spanish food, drinks and entertainment.

    Don't keep your next community or charity event a secret!

    Do you have a special event scheduled in your cemetery or facilities in the next few months? Perhaps a memorial service for your community, a dedication ceremony, a public arts events, a new product or service presentation,  or some other public benefit or charity event?

    Please let us know so we can include it in the Cemeteries & Crematoria Association of NSW (CCANSW) Community Events Diary.  By listing your community event we will also help you promote it  

    Importantly, listing the event  will help to share ideas with CCANSW members, industry colleagues and community organizers about how we can engage with our local and broader community groups and the public at large.

    Listing your event is easy. Just follow the simple instructions on this page. No log in required.

    If you have questions about the Community Events Diary, don't hesitate to ask.
