The CU Dark Arts Society is Central Illinois' first artist's guild for sorcerous practitioners and is sponsored by The Poison Thicket. We aim to serve the community by providing creative and market opportunities for creatives who are a part of the local pagan and occult communities. We meet several times monthly for craft meets, coffee or luncheons, business meetings, and eventually regular monthly pop up members for Guild members and other local occult artists and artisans.
Membership is $22 monthly and managed through Patreon subscription managed by The Poison Thicket. This is billed when you sign up for your membership and again on the first of every month. Membership fees cover advertising, website maintenance, venue rental, and event organization as well as all table fees for members at pop-up events. Non-members can participate at markets and events by paying a $35 table fee for a 6ft table or $60 for a double sized spot. Members also have access to special guild swag items like t-shirts and bags and will get these periodically as they come out.
If you are an artist and practitioner or student of the occult or have some other involvement with the strange unseen realms and are interested in joining us, please fill out the form at the following link and someone will be back to you as soon as possible.
