Macon Reed, Witch Trial (video still)


In collaboration with artist Macon Reed and her installation Hammer of Witches, Pears of Anguish in the BRIC Biennial, a series of workshops and discussions will be hosted, exploring the persecution of witches throughout history and its relation to the rise of capitalism, how we relate to our physical bodies, and collective imagination.

Lady Liberty Calls: A Ritual for Personal and Global Healing is participatory ritual for post-election releasing and recharging, and taking steps towards creating a just, sustainable world. Working with the archetype of Lady Liberty, the public is invited to partake in ritual stations to grieve, heal, and commit to actions that can create much-needed change in the current political landscape. The event will be priestessed by magical activist BrightFlame and other members of the NYC Reclaiming community.
