Creators Space and Mrakmur present:

DARK ARTS FESTIVAL

This event is inspired by dark markets and festivals in Europe, such as Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Leipzig, Germany. The Dark Arts Festival is a great way to showcase the artistic talent of those who identify their work with the aesthetics of dark culture and work with the following, but not limited to, themes: mystery, fantasy, gothic, magic, witch craft, sci-fi, Halloween, steam punk, surrealism, obscure, macabre and similar aesthetics. The Dark Arts Festival is a family friendly event.

This event is organized in cooperation with Mrakmur/ Jana Komaritsa. If you have any questions, please contact Event Coordinator Jana Komaritsa: komaritsa@gmail.com
