SUBMIT TO OUR QUARTERLY MAGAZINE! 

A publication combining contemporary art, culture and activism. ​​

Our magazine is a digital and printed publication which uses creative depictions or literature to highlight current world issues, news and movements that aren't getting the attention that they deserve. A political and environmental platform to help ignite conversations and spread awareness through visual and written poetic responses.

Our mission is to create free, accessible and inclusive opportunities which showcase global artists, creatives and writers who use their unique voices to tackle issues that have emotionally or physically impacted them. 

 

The magazine includes artist highlights, where we will curate pages of artists working in all creative mediums such as painting, sculpture, textiles, photography, digital art and graphics, poetry, dance, song lyrics, and any other experimental form of creative expression. 

The Magazine also includes a range of features such as art reviews and exhibition must-sees, interviews, essays, articles and advice columns for emerging artists. 

We are looking for submissions to any part of the above features! 

Is your artistic practice politically engaged?

SUBMIT A HANDWRITTEN LETTER

Your intimate stories can help ignite conversations, raise awareness, challenge stigma and let others know that they are not alone

 

Have you been physically or emotionally affected by a current issue?

Then write us a letter describing your experience; how it has affected you and what impact it has had on your life. 

The letter should respond to an experience where you have been physically or emotionally affected by an environmental, political or social issue.

 

This can be describing the day/moment, how it made you feel, how you dealt with the impact of the experience, what changes you have seen (if any) since the experience - any details you feel should be shared. It can be written as if you are writing to a family member, a friend, a stranger or the government, whomever you wish and whatever style you choose. 

 

You might decide to include a title, the location of the experience and the date of the experience at the top of the letter. 

 

The letter can be anonymous or named, but it may be scanned and published in our magazine. So please do not leave any personal details in the letter. If you would like us to mention your name, location and website/Instagram handle, please write these on a separate piece of paper within the envelope. 

 

The letter is restricted to one piece of A4 paper (this can also be one sheet of A5). You may continue your letter on both sides, but only on one sheet. 

 

The page can be ripped from a notebook, a sketchbook or a plain page. It can have some form of colour / visual detail to the paper, as long as the writing is clear and readable. 

Your letter may feature in our quarterly magazine and will be kept in our archive for future exhibiting and publishing opportunities. 

 

 

 

If you would like to take part, please email us at: artistsrespondingto@outlook.com and we will send you an address for the letter to be sent to 💌
