Calavera Ball

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a traditional Mexican celebration that originated over 3,000 years ago and is celebrated on All Saints' Day (November 1) and All Souls Day (November 2). Families come together to remember, honor and celebrate those who have departed. To welcome and commemorate the dead, offerings such as pan de muertos, skulls, candles, incense, yellow marigolds and, most importantly, a photo of the departed soul is placed on the altar.
 
Denver Botanic Gardens is excited to present a new adult event, Calavera Ball ¡Viva la Muerte!

Film: A Place at the Table

from http://www.takepart.com/place-at-the-table/film:

 

A Place at the Table forcefully makes the case that hunger has serious economic, social and cultural implications for the nation." — Julie Makinen, LA Times

 

Fifty million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.

 

Ultimately, A Place at the Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides — as they have in the past — that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.

Film: GMO OMG

from http://www.gmofilm.com/ :

 

GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what's on your plate?

 

Pricing: $5

Location: Mitchell Hall

Schedule: Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for serving of food, Film starts at 6:30 p.m.with a twenty minute panel discussion and question/answer following film!

Dia de los Muertos Workshop: Making Sugar Skulls

Mexico possesses a rich and complex relationship with death that extends far beyond the Day of the Dead holiday (Dia de los Muertos) and its iconic sugar skulls. In this two-hour workshop you will receive an introduction to the customs of Dia de los Muertos and the symbolism of the sugar skull.

 

During the workshop you will be taken through the sugar skull making process step by step, and then create your very own skull art. Each attendee will be provided with two sugar skulls and the materials to make sugar skulls at home to adorn your own altars. This will be a fun and joyful event with traditional holiday snacks and music. We will provide all the materials for the class and a take-home recipe for you to re-create the tradition with your friends and family.
