Want to work with us for your festival? Got an idea of how we might collaborate? Want to commission us to create an event for your occasion? Get in touch…we’d love to hear from you and we promise we don’t bite. We’re not restricted to London either…we’ve been as far as Paris before and we’d love to take Art Macabre even further afield!
Festivals / Collaborations
We’ve joined forces with a range of organisations and festivals to create special pop-up and drop-in events or structured salons both outdoors and indoors at a range of places and love doing this sort of thing. From appearing on stage as part of a cabaret programme at Playgroup Festival in Tunbridge Wells. to outdoors in a Parisian cafe garden as part of Ladyfest DIY festival, to running a workshop as part of Museum of London’s Resurrection Men exhibition late night opening.
We can animate your venue and bring an additional element to your programme, whether running as the main event centre stage, or as a beguiling sideshow to add intrigue to your space and programme. Don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can come up with some fantastic ideas for how we might work together to create something specific to your event and space.
Hen Parties / Stag Dos / WI meetings / Celebrations / Work Socials / Corporate Workshops
Fancy doing something creative and alternative for your party? Art Macabre can create a specially tailored workshop for you and your friends, from 8 to 200 people, with a theme of your choice and based on your own ideas or customised from our classic themes, ranging from ‘Romance is Dead’ and ‘Kiss of Death’ to ‘Death by Chocolate’ or ‘Dark Woodlands’. Playful and fun drawing challenges and games, prizes and exercises, led by Raven Rouge to get everyone relaxed and exploring their dark, death drawing side.
Drawing materials can be provided and assistance with finding a suitable venue can also be given, if desired.
