The Ancestors Project is an opportunity for the public to permanently memorialize their loved ones in the Procession. It is one of the most inclusive of the ASP Projects, where participants are invited to submit photographs of those they wish to honor to a digital memorial that is projected at the Finale Ceremony.
You have the option to have your photo included in our Facebook album All Souls Stories: This is Why We Walk. (We create a new album for each year.) Check the boxes accordingly.
Please include a note in the Message field–names of the people in the photo, years that they lived, a story about them, who they are to you, etc.
Anyone can participate in this project, whether virtually or in person. The images collected every year become part of the Ancestors Archive, a never-ending memorial and legacy of the Procession and its radical inclusiveness. You may send submissions anytime throughout the year for All Souls! Thank you for participating.
For details on this year’s deadlines, please see our calendar.
Certain images submitted to the Ancestors Project may be color-corrected and cropped. In no way will images be distorted, cut-up, or edited as to misrepresent, and/or change the likeness of the main subject in the photo. Many Mouths One Stomach, organizers of the All Souls Procession, agrees to treat all submitted images with the utmost care and respect. Past years images are placed in the MMOS Archive.
By submitting images to the Ancestors Project you acknowledge that the above information is understood and give MMOS permission to use the images for publicity purposes.
PLEASE: You are welcome to submit multiple times for different people. But please submit only one photo for each person you want to remember. Space is limited in the Ancestors slideshow, so we can only include one photo of each person being remembered.
Deadline for Ancestors Submissions: November 1, 2016
Any images received after this date will be used for the 2017 Ancestors Slideshow. We will include them in the Facebook album as time permits.
