Remember the Dead

Remember the Dead is a collaboration between Polka Dot Dragon Arts Society and Nelson and District Hospice Society. The intention is to create an opportunity for remembrance and connection to the departed loved ones in our lives and a safe container for experiencing and creatively expressing our grief.   During the event, the public is invited to participate in the self-directed walk through the cemetery anytime from 4-7pm, and to place remembrance luminaria to honour loved ones.  Luminaria kits can be purchased at Cowan’s for $2 or made in our workshops. The event will also include a magical mailbox to send letters to the beyond, live music, a Dia de los Muertos altar, and a preview of the Nelson Hospice Windphones.

Please walk or carpool if possible. Parking on side streets is limited.
