2015 Art and Change Grant – $2,400

Ana will lead a community of immigrants to preserve Day of the Dead- a Mexican cultural tradition- and resist its mainstream exploitation using paper-mache. Through eight workshops, participants will research ancient, inherited documents that explain the origins of this celebrated syncretism. Together, with Casa Monarca in South Philadelphia, they will design and produce a colorful procession with the pieces created at these workshops, culminating in an authentic Day of the Dead celebration.
