For all of our local New Mexico Readers:
The UNM Latin American & Iberian Institute (LAII) and the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) are pleased to announce this free professional development workshop.
Join us for our second workshop of the series as we discuss and celebrate the rituals of remembrance associated with Día de los Muertos. Día de los Muertos is an important holiday for many in Latin American, as well as for many here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The LAII invites educators to learn hands-on strategies for incorporating this holiday into the classroom, as well as to explore the cultural and historical elements of the holiday. In this comprehensive session, we discuss and celebrate the rituals of remembrance associated with Día de los Muertos. We will explore many facets of Día de los Muertos art-making including ofrendas, alfeñiques, and more! Participants will receive hands-on instruction in different activities, and be provided with certificates of professional development and copies of relevant curriculum materials. Want to get as much information about Día de los Muertos art-making in one place at one time? Then this is the workshop for you!
We are so excited to be collaborating with the National Hispanic Cultural Center to offer this half day workshop on Saturday September 20th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The workshop will be held at the NHCC at 1701 4th St SW, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87102.
