Oracles: Divination Practice & Portrait-Making

How do QTPOC use magical practices to conjure radical futures? In this session, we will call forth our visions for liberation, perform a divination practice, and create adornments to honor ourselves and each other. These adornments will be used to create portraits, in collaboration with the Magic as Resistance film project, in which participants embody archetypes of oracles. Participants will walk away with digital copies of the portraits and skills to develop their own divination practices.
