Places that are good for the soul
A mobile society, in which grave cultivation has become a burden, requires future-oriented solutions. The cemetery as a place of cultural tradition has a key societal task in this sense and is a major part of our approaches to future-oriented solutions.
It is a good place to give expression mourning in an individual manner and at the same time a place of communication and meeting. People, with their changing needs, are the centre of attention.
In a project community with the Bundesverband Deutsche Steinmetze (BIV) German stonemasons’ association and the Bund deutscher Friedhofsträger (BdF) cemetery association, Kunstgießerei Strassacker began the “places that are good for the soul” project in 2009. This project intends to help positively shape and develop the changes in mourning culture in accordance with the wishes of all involved, in particular the mourners. It intends to point out new ways to take leave and design the cemetery of tomorrow.
The necessary condition for the implementation of the “places that are good for the soul” project is to persuade the decision-makers beforehand. Cemetery owners must be convinced of the value of the “Places that do us good” project and make space available for the implementation.
