On November 3 – 5, 2016, SAY Sí will present its 10th annual Muertitos Fest, a 3-day Día de los Muertos festival which celebrates the tradition that ties our city to Mexico and commemorates the rich Mexican-American culture of San Antonio. With this year’s theme, “Fronteras de la Tierra y Cielos (Borders of the Earth & Heavens),” artwork, installations, altars and performances will focus on the connections between the living and those who have passed.

Muertitos Fest, one of San Antonio’s most comprehensive Día de los Muertos celebrations, provides an educational context to this important holiday, with three days of unique cultural happenings including: an exhibition of student Día de los Muertos art, notable folk art exhibits, altars to honor the departed, family folk art workshops, food booths, an artisan mercado and live multidisciplinary cultural performances.

This year, SAY Sí will also bring an international perspective to the holiday through a creative collaboration with Prayasam, a youth organization from Kolkata, India. Youth from Prayasam will travel to San Antonio to work with SAY Sí student-artists and cultivate a project that explores the connections between Día de los Muertos and the Indian celebration Pitru Paksha (fortnight of the ancestors). This project is part of an international youth residency series, Project Papalote, supported by Adobe Project 1324. The project that the organization’s youth create will be premiered at the Fest.
