Dia de los Muertos Self-Guided Community Ofrenda Tour


*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 11/08/2020
Learn about the roots of Dia de los Muertos and the real culture behind the day through the c/s Initiative's Community Ofrenda Tour.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

The c/s Initiative's Community Ofrenda Tour showcases the real culture and meaning of Dia de los Muertos through 10 art ofrendas or altars created by people of color (POC) artists, collectives and groups in independently owned POC businesses in our neighborhoods.  A virtual ofrenda will be included on the website that includes pictures and short written pieces by community members that honor those in the spirit world.

Our goals are to:

  • Reclaim Dia de los Muertos as a cultural practice that connects us to our queridos difuntos (departed loveones).
  • Create exposure for the participating artists (bios, links to websites, and other information will be listed) by giving them visibility outside of the traditional art world.
  • Encourage people to support the local people of color (POC) owned businesses in the community who create jobs and contribute to the economic health of neighborhoods.
