During the season of “And Then?...” the DHC is attempting to understand the past, clarify the present, and prepare to make a better future in which we are dedicated to our mutual flourishing. This tarot-themed event—which takes place completely through the U.S. mail and is free and open to the general public—looks at the tarot historically and philosophically, thinking about card-reading as a practice and tarot cards as a form of art and a cultural artifact. How might art be a way in which we can accomplish our timely goals? How do human practices, steeped in tradition, point to possible answers as well?
Each person who signs up for this event will receive three new tarot cards comprising the celestial Major Arcana: the Sun, the Moon, and the Star. Each never-before-seen card has been created especially for this event by four of the most talented and respected tarot designers working today.
The mailing will also include an essay on the meaning of the tarot in relation to the “And Then?...” question as well as a fourth blank card. Participants will be encouraged, but not required, to use the blank card in order to design a card of their own, mailing it back to the DHC so that we might compile a new, full, eclectic tarot deck that has been created by our professional artists and you, the community at large.
We then hope to make this full deck available to everyone in the future—a future newly clarified and full of renewed promise.
