Artist Call: Art for the Dead-Muertos in the Park

The goal of Art for the Dead is to offer the San Diego community a safe alternative to Halloween with activities that have culturally relevant focus through multi-generational workshops and activities, based on the traditions of Día de lo Muerto (Muertos). To engage the San Diego community in a dialog based on the continuation and educational efforts to keep cultural traditions alive and relevant in today’s modern society; to address concerns regarding the co-option of Halloween over Muertos along the Frontera (border region), and its impact on communities and families who have conflicted identities.
