In June, we’ll release our very first issue, and the theme is something very dear to our hearts: Margins. What lives in the margins? Who is marginalized in our society, and what are they making? How do we navigate the margins on a daily basis? These aren’t just questions that artists must answer, they’re questions for the entire community. But to build a community, we need people, and that’s where you come in.
We need contributors. Writers, videographers, photojournalists. If you are interested in the arts in Chicago, and especially if you are interested in the arts no one else is, we want to hear from you. Maybe you want to interview your favorite creative weirdo. Maybe you want to explore how being on the outside has affected your own work. Maybe you’ve found art in an unusual space, and you can’t wait to tell the world. Whatever it is, let us know, and we can help you publish it on a city-wide level.
