Tarot and divinatory readings Saturday, July 24 all evening and Sunday July 25 from afternoon into the evening. Times are approximate, do drop by.

The Ministry welcomes FASTWURMS for a weekend of participatory performance. FASTWURMS is an ongoing cultural project (1979- ), the trademark and the joint authorship of Kim Kozzi and Dai Skuse.

FASTWURMS' art practice is based on a DIY sensibility, an allegiance towards working class, artist collaborations and queer alliance, a practice predicated on the exchange and circulation of aesthetic knowledge as a performative and public narrative.

As a Witch identified practice and a subversive participant in bent identity politics, FASTWURMS brings a "twisted" critical perspective to investigations of the "other", difference, agency and authenticity.

Hood Woad is an experimental storefront Drop In Center.

Following the guidelines of the Witch Nation Public Health Protocol(WNPHP), Hood Woad will be using several diagnostic tools for at risk youth assessment. (Youth is defined as any person under 55, or any Witch with less than a 1,000 incarnations on this planet)

Counselors will be screening for Sexual Addiction Potential (SAP) using Tarot Cards and the seminal text The Sexual Key to the Tarot by Theodor Laurence.

Counselors will also be using the Witch Nation Alienation Index (WNAI) to identify wage slaves and quantify their degree of alienated labour. Alienation from nature will also be assessed and advice on the adoption of familiars will be proffered.

Hood Woad will also give free advice to any at risk youth for transforming standard pathologies into unusual gifts, for example, the conversion of standard Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD) into Attention Surplus Advantage (ASA).

Unique Divinatory techniques created for Hood Woad include the Long Board Spread (LBS), a tarot card reading developed for long boards, and Truck Clairvoyance Bearings (TCB), the interpretation of subtle spinning bearing noise patterns for clues to the Querent's future.
Hood Woad is dedicated to getting our at risk youth off the streets and into Mental Health Magic (MHM), under the aegis of Witch Nation directive #2, Love is the Law.
