Remembrance 2023

Remembrance 2023

The Arroyo Arts Collective presents Remembrance 2023, an exploration into a deepened understanding and meaning of All Saints Day, Dia de los Muertos, Ching Ming, Obon, Samhain, the Mourner’s Kaddish and of all rituals, historically and worldwide, associated with how we grieve, how we continue to love, and how we go on in the face of loss.

It is our intent to create a space where those who have gone before us are remembered and revered. The rituals of death are different in each culture, but grief is universal, as is the need for a sense of continuity with our ancestors and history. Thus, as we are different, we are the same.

Postal Service For The Dead: Postal Service for the Dead is an ongoing, collective project where people send letters to anyone in their life who has died.
