Lifting the Veil is a 3-day interactive Esoteric and Occult Arts Festival based in Philadelphia, Pa. The term "Lifting the Veil" refers to the pagan tradition speaking of the time where seasons transition into shorter days, longer nights, and colder times -- physically, spiritually, and mentally. Traditionally celebrated at Samhain (Halloween), this metaphor tells us that the veil between worlds is lifted, lines blurred, and what burrows beneath the surface of our conscious awareness flows a bit more freely.
Leeway grantee Eva Wŏ (LTA '17) is a co-curator of Lifting the Veil, and several Leeway community members are performers, speakers, or featured artists: Monika Estrella Negra (ACG '18), Eppchez! (ACG '18), and Wit López (ACG '18).
The themes for each respective day are:
November 2: 'The Shadow Self'
November 3: 'The Left Hand Path'
November 4: 'The Light Within'
