Join author and astrologer Alice Sparkly Kat and Don’t Tell The Village Elders collective in a Halloween themed workshop about processing dystopia through horror, poetry, and spellwork. 

Together we’ll explore fear, grief and transition, how horror as a genre can act as an ally for processing the dystopian realities we found ourselves in collectively and individually. Be prepared to take part in a writing game, amateur writers and writers who write for pleasure are welcome. 

We hope that this space will give you a place where you are able to grieve and transition in a group setting. Bring your heart, be ready to write, and have a functioning keyboard and wifi signal.

Bios: 

Alice Sparkly Kat is an astrologer. They use astrology to re-chart a history of the subconscious, redefine the body in the world, and reimagine history as collective memory. Their astrological work has inhabited MoMA, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and The Brooklyn Museum. They’re the author of Postcolonial Astrology.Don’t Tell The Village Elders collective is a network of BPOC practitioners reclaiming our spiritual practices from legacies of colonialism and capitalism. We have a vision for a spirituality and wellness movement centred in deep personal and social change. We come from a variety of backgrounds – including the arts, activism and occultism and through this network we aim to build a home for those multiplicities and to support each other in discovering more about our connection to divinity.
