Day of the Dead @ Wellcome Collection – London : 5 November 2011, 12.00 – 17.00

Skeleton family

Originating deep in Aztec culture, the ‘Dia de los Muertos’ is a hallowed day in the Mexican calendar when thoughts and offerings are given to the dead. Both sacred and celebratory, the Day of the Dead is a festival of remembrance and a time to party!

Join in with skeleton dancers, and tap time with mariachis.

Explore the world of remembrance from Mexicans in London with a specially commissioned video.

Decorate sugar skulls, and make an ‘ofrenda’ to our altar.

Hear fascinating storytelling on the world of the dead.

Join the legion of the dead and have your face painted.

Witness our grand processional finale, and take part in the final dance of the dead.

This event is FREE and drop-in.

This event has been curated by Jimena Gorraez Belmar

Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE, UK
