A residency with Dark Room Oracle intersects performance, ritual, folk magic and poetry/pros, materialization. Past residents, for example, used the instagram platform to post digital spells, hold panels via zoom, and create divination exchanges. You may choose to write letters, facilitate a bridge between Dark Room Oracle space and your space through record keeping, psychic works, offering products or services for a specific amount of time within rules, themes or elements. We are particularly versed in lunar work, journey work, divination, poetry, herbal folk magic, personal myth and lore, photography, performance art. The residency is currently facilitated by Nebi Void and assisted by Sarah Blanchette with occasional guest artists and makers. The residency can serve as a jump start to ideas or works that need room to explore without material restriction, focusing on ideas, concept or actions.
