Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose to host Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos at CDM

Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose is hosting a Día de los Muertos program Oct. 28 to honor the lives of departed ancestors and loved ones. Attendees can create a sand painting with stencils, make cardboard calaveras (skulls) in the Neiman Art Studio, learn about the traditions of Día de los Muertos and take in the larger-than-life skeleton puppets and the calaveras procession led by Teatro Familia Aztlán, which includes a stop at Lupe, the 14,000-year-old “muerto” mammoth.

Visitors will be invited to write down the names of loved ones who have passed and say those names aloud, and to bring a personal memento to share on a community altar built for the day and visit an altar created by artist Lissa Jones in the Oaxacan tradition on view Oct. 23-Nov. 2.

Othering and Belonging

Santa Clara County wants to be welcoming to everyone. The county’s Office of Immigrant Relations partnered with UC Berkeley’s Othering and Belonging Institute to hear from residents about what matters to immigrant communities in the county.

This survey is part of a two-year information-gathering process that will inform current and future policy, funding and service delivery.

The survey, found online at https://desj.sccgov.org/immigrant-belonging-project, will be open through Oct. 31. All entries will be kept anonymous, and participants will not be asked for their name, address or immigration status.
