In this video Patrick Hutchinson and Belfast Andi will guide us through their symbolic interpretations of its celebrations. Let’s cross the imaginary and the ancestral.

Autumn is recognized as the time to reap the fruits of our labour. It is also the best time to prepare for the long winter ahead. Many crops combine this natural cycle of transformation and slowing down to that of life and death. Irish culture roots this celebration in the ancient Samhain, a Celtic tradition that gave origin to Halloween. During the full moon of October, the veil that separates the world of the living and the world of the dead becomes finer and allows a relationship to the ancestors.
