Welcome to the world of The Secret Arts, a new experience from Atlas Obscura that invites some of the world’s rarest experts and artisans to share the hidden knowledge of their singular craft. Each weekly edition of The Secret Arts features a different craftsperson in discussion with host Eric Grundhauser (Atlas Obscura), exploring some of the key lessons and discoveries they’ve made over the years, how you might try your hand at their unique skill, and answering your questions live! Join us, and take a step into the unknown realm of The Secret Arts!
This week we're going to be exploring the art of creating a murder mystery event with mystery designer (and former Atlas Obscura all-star), Abi Inman! Abi is a murder mystery hostess and writer who has held events everywhere from New York City to Belgrade. She started Exquisite Corpse to create a new twist on the classic murder mystery party format, by basing the events on historical events and hosting them in historic venues. We'll learn how to build an intriguing mystery, what a good character looks like, how to cater to any level of extroversion/introversion, and more!
Host, Programming Lead, Atlas Obscura Experiences. Eric heads up Atlas Obscura's custom hosted experiences program, writing and designing experiences that bring Atlas Obscura's vision of wonder to life. He lives in Brooklyn with his comic book collection. His work has been featured in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Slate, NPR, Vanity Fair, The AV Club, Motherboard, Smithsonian, and a bunch of other places where reasonable content is sold.
