Femininity and Queer identity is closely tied with how Ashley wrote and produced this work and will feature paintings, sculpture and drawings mixed with personal stories, written in a storytelling structure.

The show will also feature Tarot readings on the 17th and 18th, geared towards dismantling patriarchal structures within traditional tarot systems and re-imagining archetypes within a more inclusive psychological structure while staying true to its folk roots.

The readings will incorporate mindfulness practice at its core, allowing people regardless of gender or sexual identity to identify. Anyone who wants to chat about how to read in this way is more than welcome to go along to the show and have a chat.
