Following the success of our first symposium we are pleased to announce The Alchemical Landscape II. This second event will focus on occultural visions of the landscape across film, television, video and associated media.

We will be presenting a programme featuring a wide range of excellent speakers: academics, writers, artists, film-makers. We will also be welcoming Jo Melvin (Chelsea College of Art) and Marc Atkins & Rod Mengham (Sounding Pole Films) to deliver keynote addresses.  

Do join us for what promises to be a fascinating day of talks and discussion. 

Tickets are £39 and can be purchased via PayPal. See our Tickets page for more details.
