Ghost Story Campfire Night by Wong Chee Meng and Zarina Mohd
This event will simulate the atmosphere of a campfire night, where participants would get to share or listen to supernatural tales, true or imaginary, and reflect on one’s fascination or hidden fears as may be tied to such tales. This would be interspersed with sound installations of ghost stories of the yesteryears in random languages. One may also simply sit around and share food and drinks while listening, or imagine a game of treasure hunt discovering fragments of literary texts on mystery or haunting, for a cool night of experiencing a lost art of storytelling.

Water is the Medicine by Reilly Phanes
This ritual is an opportunity for the LGBTQI community to gather and share our grief and pain, to process the gamut of emotions we each hold in response to the tragedy of the shootings at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, and offer healing and solace for one another. It also offers a safe space for deep witnessing and presence for participants.
Reilly Phanes is a radical queer pagan artist whose research and practice consist of three major strands; 1) ritual and sacred performance, 2) mythology; personal and collective narratives, and 3) queer consciousness expressed in identity, politics and community. His work seeks a rejuvenation and re-enchanting of the queer experience through the mythopoeic function of collective rituals and creative mythic living.
