It's a fact that women working in the arts have a much harder journey than their male counter parts, in a patriarchal system that challenges women every step of the way.

Join us on the 14th of November at Art Arcana, where we have a talk by Lucy Harrigan of FoolishPeople.

Lucy has produced and performed in over fifty original projects for FoolishPeople. The list of productions and projects includes feature films, independent publishing, large scale immersive theatre productions (Museum of Virulent Experience), commissions and collaborations for ICA, Secret Cinema and Wilderness Festival.

Her work on creative projects spans through pregnancy, having small children in tow and even working whilst being in labour. Raising a young family and continuing to be creative is a complex and difficult challenge for female artists in all disciplines. Join us on the 14th of November at Art Arcana where Lucy will share her journey, the triumphs, disasters and challenges of the moon. 🌕

"Beneath the surface of the lies they've told you, the ways they’ve made you act, is a clean and pristine mind that can change everything. All you need to do is say the words..." Museum of Virulent Experience

At the finale of Virulent Experience the eschaton takes place. There was only one artist who could create music for such an immense moment. #Prince and Let's Go Crazy. The immensity of his music accompanied us each night, in a dance that celebrated the unlimited potential of every human mind. We will never forget what we experienced inside Conway Hall in each cycle of the ritual, when your glorious music helped unlock and open our imaginations.

"The production (Strange Factories) fuses the haunting, authentic dreamworlds of David Lynch and the theatrical philosophies of Antonin Artaud, who believed in the Theater of Cruelty, using stagecraft to create a vivid and disturbing reality to powerfully draw in the audience."

Dearest Imaginari,

I have pertinent information that I must share before our Halloween celebrations commence at 7pm on the 26th of October at the Cinema Museum. Such terrifying secrets, myths and rumours that will aid your field research.

This material is only available to members of this Society who have proven their abilities as fearless and committed members of our Guild. You must confirm your attendance and claim or purchase tickets before the 25th of October to receive vital information which will support and aid your hunt.

Sadly, there are those amongst the Society, spread elsewhere throughout the world, who are unable to join us in person. But thanks to the miracle of the Radiogram, they too are performing their own versions of the ritual, to join with us in witnessing the full power of Stronheim’s lost work! Those who wish to obtain a copy of the haunted film, for personal research purposes may do so at http://watch.strangefactories.com/

Do not fear this gift.
