DENVER — With sugar skulls, paint and family trees, the Latino Cultural Arts Center (LCAC) kicked off a fall full of events dedicated to Día de los Muertos and mental wellness.
The series of events, called Ofrendas 2022, focuses on resilience through storytelling. The events begin in October and carry into November, honoring family traditions and creating safe space to share mental health resources.
