FUTURE RITUAL  works to support the emergence of new and more attuned cultures, collaborating with artists to create  contemporary expressions of ritual.


Led by Joseph Morgan Schofield, FUTURE RITUAL fosters spaces in which to think and feel through ideas of land, desire, belief, mystery and death. Since 2017, we have intentionally shifted shape between iterations, temporarily activating and inhabiting borrowed spaces, organising curatorial programmes and pedagogical exchanges, publishing artist-driven research, and collaborating as a creative producers with a constellation of  practitioners.
