LATIN VOICES LIVE! 2013

Latin Voices Live! Family Day

Sat 9 November, 1-5pm, free entry

Skeletons, ghouls and ghosts will be coming to a special party for all ages at Brighton Dome this November. Latin Voices Live! is a celebration of Latin cultures from around the world, focusing on Mexico’s most famous holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), which honours and remembers dead loved ones and family.

Come celebrate Brighton’s take on Dia de los Muertos in Brighton Dome, Brighton Museum and Jubilee Library with live music, food, film, talks, arts and crafts, visual arts and a specially decorated remembrance table, where we will be honouring legendary Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges and British-Ghanian artist, dancer and poet Irene Mensah, who sadly passed away this year.

There will be plenty of children and family activities and workshops to amuse all ages.  Come dressed as ‘day of the dead’ or have your face painted. You can also bring stuff to put on the remembrance table.

In the library, there will be several readings from Latin authors, including Chilean activist and torture survivor Luis Munoz, who returns to Latin Voices Live! to read from his moving memoir, Being Luis.  

Come and learn about Latin cultures and their celebrations!

Brighton Dome, 4/5, Pavilion Buildings, Prince’s St, Brighton, East Sussex BN1 1EE

Workshops £1-3 by donation, food and drink for sale, tickets for Luis Munoz £5/4 through Eventbrite.
