Each year, this very unique and moving event takes place at the Union Cemetery and CRSP will be a part of the experience. This is open to everyone and is free of charge.
Inspired by both ancient and contemporary traditions from around the globe, Equinox Vigil is a creative, respectful evening to honour the deceased and celebrate the natural cycle of Life and Death itself.
Inspiring art installations, video projections, and shrines created by professional artists form the heart of the Equinox Vigil experience.
But this is not art displayed as in a formal gallery setting. Rather, these artworks come alive through public participation. By performing simple acts like lighting candles or sharing the names of deceased loved ones at the digital shrine, each visitor to Equinox Vigil becomes part of a community drawing close to mourn its dead through art and public ritual.
