Day of the Dead

Virtual Art and Education

Seeking Community Partners

Day of the Dead (El Dia de los Muertos) tradition culminates Nov 2. Alive is hosting a FREE community Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) virtual art and education exhibit. We will be hosting virtual educational and altar-building sessions in October. Stay tuned for details.

As a provider of end-of-life care, education and grief support, we strive to expand the conversation about death and healing and facilitate cultural exchange in Middle Tennessee. Day of the Dead is a family remembrance and religious tradition in Mexico that includes community celebration and bonding. Humorous portrayals of skeletons and death remind the living to make the most of their precious time together. Families build altars, cook and share traditional food to remember loved ones who have died. Learn more.

We are especially seeking those who wish to share about this tradition from a personal perspective and bi-lingual Spanish/English speakers.

We invite you to participate directly as a partner or just share the event details with your own community.
