Calavera Crew

ORGANIZATION: Des Moines Art Center


Come together to help make big things happen in your community! Many hands are needed to bring the Day of the Dead to life for Central Iowans. Join the Des Moines Art Center’s Calavera Crew to aid in our Day of the Dead Celebration and support related Latinx focused events within Des Moines.

What we remember lives- this idea is at the heart of Dia de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. The Des Moines Art Center has been honored to be the site of Des Moines’ largest celebration of this beloved Mexican holiday for over 20 years. We are looking for dedicated volunteers to join our efforts in creating this meaningful and memorable event.

Volunteer duties include but are not limited to greeting, assisting in hands on activities, directing, decorating, providing directions and information, keeping stations tidy and helping other volunteers.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Calavera Crew, please apply online at or contact Cassandra Tant at
