Anba Dlo is Kreyol for "From Beneath the Waters." It refers to the realm of departed souls. The time of year around All Hallows Eve, the day of remembrance for the departed, is a time to call these souls forth. In New Orleans, this name has special resonance; our city has been called up from Under the Waters to rise, rebuild and heal.

The New Orleans Hope and Heritage Project and The New Orleans Healing Center are pleased to announce the date for The Second Annual Anba Dlo Festival. This year’s event, Apology to the Waters 2010, will be held on Halloween Eve, Friday, October 30 from 5:00 pm to 4:00 am at 2372 St Claude Avenue in the Bywater. Waterline 2009 is a 21+ costume event, featuring free drinks, a costume parade and contest, outdoor live music stage, DJs and a dance floor, Trance/Spiritual music room, fire dancers and acrobats and a Faculty Art exhibit, along with many other activities.
An interactive community festival, Anba Dlo celebrates the multicultural and artistic heritage of New Orleans through such mediums as sculpture, visual art, body painting, crafts, music, dance, acrobatics and costume. Anba Dlo's main event will take place in the 55,000 sq. ft. historic building which is home to The New Orleans Healing Center, a multidisciplinary community revitalization project located in the heart of the burgeoning St Claude Ave. Arts District. All activities of Anba Dlo are centered on an onsite water sculpture created from Katrina debris and assembled by local artists and community members. This interactive artwork will be unveiled at midnight during the Anba Dlo event as a personal community mandala combining sculpture, craft, tribal dance, fire, sound and light. The completed sculpture will then continue to be displayed in the central lobby of the Healing Center until the following year. Admission for the event is $15. Advance tickets will be available September 20, 2010, at www.neworleanshealingcenter.org, along with commemorative t-shirts, posters and raffle tickets.
In addition to the costume party, Anba Dlo will also feature a costume parade and the Faculty Collective Art exhibit. The parade, starts at 6:30 pm at Markey Park. Everyone is invited to join the parade, led by The Radical Faeries, as it makes its way through the festive streets of New Orleans to the New Orleans Healing Center. Make sure you dress for the party (water-themed costumes such as mermaids and other ocean creatures are suggested) and prepare to celebrate Halloween “Nawlins” style!
The Faculty Collective Art exhibition, featuring the work of 50 local university art faculty members, celebrates the remarkable art teaching faculties at the universities and colleges of New Orleans. The unfolding efflorescence of art in the city, especially over the last decade, is the glorious result of the vision, intelligence and teaching skills of these creative and committed artists. The New Orleans Healing Center is honored to bring together, for the first time, an exhibition of the work of all the city's art faculties. The show opens on Halloween Eve, as part of the Anba Dlo Festival. The Faculty Collective Art exhibition will officially open on October 30 runs through December 12.
