  • 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.
