Dia de los Muertos: Remember Me

October 5 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Day of the Dead

The NSU Center for the Humanities presents an interactive presentation from Florida Day of the Dead organizers, celebrating the rich history and practices of customs that honor the lives of the departed. This event is part of the Center’s 2022 Hispanic Heritage Month series of programming: “Generaciones: Cycles of Life.” The series celebrates the importance of family and the way that the joys and sorrows of life’s transitions generate new growth.

Artist and puppeteer Jim Hammond, director of Florida Day of the Dead, will discuss the traditions behind the organization’s annual Day of the Dead celebration in downtown Fort Lauderdale. On Dia de los Muertos, it is believed that the gateway between Mictlan, the ancient Aztec land of the dead, and our own opens up so we can dance and sing with our lost loved ones for one special time of year. Rooted in community, this event embraces a universe of ideas from legions of talented skull inspired artists, mariachi musicians, painted performers and enthusiastic skeleton clad revelers.

The event will be held in the NSU Alvin Sherman Library, Cotilla Gallery (2nd floor). Parking is available in the parking garage adjacent to the library. This free program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant in partnership with Nova Southeastern University.
