Hunt and Gather returns with Majestic Creatures this August, a one day arts and music gathering.
Majestic Creatures, we are told, will be “an evening of dancing, unusual encounters, visual feasts and hedonistic adventure, brought to you by a collective of forward thinking kindred souls, grasping at the strings of our imagination…all born from a longing to reconnect with the individual.”
Hunt and Gather wants to create a multidimensional space that cultivates unique experiences, tantalising all your senses, and encouraging creativity among like-minded individuals. They believe in nurturing natural curiosity, child like wonder, heartfelt connection, meaningful experience, genuine atmosphere and vibrancy through creation.
Majestic Creatures celebrates the thinker, the doer, the feeler, the maker, the reveler, and will feature an eclectic mix of music, art, theatre, dance, food, fortune telling, costume, and spoken word, all in equal measures.
Hunt and Gather want to disrupt the traditional approach to the gallery, theatre and club space; here is a platform that will encourage free expression, and provide an environment for social acceptance and a playground for the young at heart.
