INTERVIEW WITH A WITCH
Bri Luna and Witchcraft in the 21st Century

The belief in, and practice of, witchcraft predates recorded history. It is found in both primitive and advanced societies throughout the world, rooted in a belief system bound by magic, the supernatural and medicine. The role of the witch spans from doctor to fortune teller to defender of justic, though they have suffered a long and violent history of misunderstanding, fear and persecution. Being a practitioner of witchcraft could lead to exile, prosecution, and execution. Even in the 21stcentury, violence against witches is on the rise, with the haunting reality that these acts of violence are predominantly against women.

The Goodship welcomes Bri Luna, founder of The Hoodwitch, for a conversation exploring the misconceptions and realities of being a witch, and the pulse of witchcraft in the 21st century. From technology to feminism to casting spells, Luna shares her family history and personal practices in witchcraft and the some of the realities behind centuries of misconceptions. Live music by The Hair and Space Museum and a complimentary (un-infused) confection bar provided by the Goodship. To learn more about Bri, visit The Hoodwitch.

Our goal is to present some of the most innovative, mind-bending, revolutionary and extraordinary ideas happening in art, culture, technology, science and philosophy.
