Eve of The Living Dead

This interweave was inspired by the Mexican "Día de Muertos" Festival.

We took some time to think about the relationship between the living and the dead. There was an opportuinity to talk and be listened to, or pray with people. People who came could also research or discuss this often neglected experience. There were a range of crafts on option for people to use as a way of working through feelings of loss, and expression personal feelings which can be difficult to talk about. We also created a community memorial where people brought objects so that we could make the invisible relatioships which help make us who we are, visible. It was also a place for refreshment - including the opporunity to have a picnic with your ancestors.
