The most honorable way to celebrate El Día de Los Muertos and loved ones who have passed is with remembrance and a celebration of their lives.

Community Altar. Bring flowers and a photo of a loved one to place on an ofrenda, community altar. You may bring a luminary for the ofrenda, but an open flame is not recommended. The altar will remain on display @SCC until November 11th.

Performance. We invite anyone who wishes to remember a loved one with a performance such as a song, story or reading. Performances are limited to 5-minutes each — to participate, you must contact Marta V. Martínez at marta@rilatinoarts.org by 10/30.

Procession. A fun-filled procession leaving SouthLight will begin at 6:45pm, when we will walk towards Grace Church Cemetery (across Broad Street). Bring a luminary to carry as we make our way to the cemetery. Wear comfortable shoes! Tours and living history performances will be led by teens from the Manton Avenue Project as we honor the dead who are buried there.

FREE! Families, children welcome and must be accompanied by an adult for the procession. Face painting ($5) will be offered to help you fully get into the spirit of
Día de Los Muertos. Storytelling by Rhode Island Black Storytellers. Create and add a memory ribbon to the Freedom Tree @SCC.

This project is made possible with support from the Providence Department of Art, Culture + Tourism (AC+T),
ArtPlace America and LISC.
