Mission Statement

Many Mouths One Stomach (MMOS) is a Tucson-based collective of artists, teachers and community activists who come together with the intent to create, inspire, manifest and perpetuate modern festal culture.

“Festal Culture” is the expression and fulfillment of core human needs through public celebration, ceremony, and ritual. The All Souls Procession is an event that was created to serve the public need to mourn, reflect, and celebrate the universal experience of Death, through their ancestors, loved ones and the living.

Our events establish a legacy that reclaims public space through art and blurs the line between participant and observer, ritual and performance.

Together with our commitment to education, outreach, and collaboration, MMOS stewards a vision wherein the creative act becomes a mode of living.

Program 1

All Souls Procession Weekend

MMOS’s flagship event began as an individual performance piece by Tucson artist, Susan Johnson in 1990. Today All Souls has now become one of the most authentic public ceremonies in North America today. Over 20,000 people from all walks of life come together every fall in Downtown Tucson to commemorate, honor, mourn and celebrate the passing of our ancestors and loved ones.

In the months leading up to the Procession, free, family-friendly workshops are offered to the public. In addition, MMOS gives people the opportunity to experience the event through projects like the Urn and Video Ancestry Project.
