Hex the Patriarchy: A Living Tarot Event (Portland)

  • Clinton Street Theater Portland, OR (map)

Join us on the eve of the historic full eclipse (Aug 21 - the first since 1918) to gather our spiritual and political energies in a Living Tarot and magical reading of the political sphere and a celebration of our spiritual and creative resistance.

Cohosts Rabbit/Yeshe Matthews (The Sacred Well - Portland), a nationally renowned wiccan activist and author Anne-christine d'Adesky (The Pox Lover: An Activist's Decade in New York and Paris - thepoxlover.com) have planned a fantastic evening to help you eclipse these troubled times.

This is a benefit for the Russian LGBT Network to help rescue and resettle Chechen gay men under death threat, and we invite all Portland area witches, activists, artists, and progressives to come together and explore what’s ahead and HEX THE PATRIARCHY!

This is a living theatrical experience in which talented tarot artists and others will embody and interpret a public reading of the tarot in light of Trump and tyranny and the power of magic and unified resistance to transform our planet.
