Bethlem Salon Series 2: ‘FOLK AUTHORITY’ 

Monday 17 July, 2023

Join us to find out about the resurgence of interest in community folklore traditions amongst artists and activists. 

With shamanism the fastest-growing religion in the UK and more pagans and Wiccans counted in the 2022 census than ever before, it’s no surprise to see folk customs being revived and updated for the modern world. Activists involved in the environmental movement are making these customs their own, using them to reconnect with the planet and defy establishment structures. 

Join artist Max Reeves and Simon Costin, Director of the Museum of British Folklore for an online conversation about all things ‘folk’.

This event runs alongside the group exhibition Elsewhere which shows from 24 May to 9 September 2023. 


This event was recorded and is available to watch here.
