Our monthly Zine uses creative depictions and 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. 

We are looking for creative responses that are current to each Issue's monthly news. Have you read an article that has made you angry? Or not seen enough articles on a topic or happening that you are passionate about? Ranging from environmental disasters and emergencies, COVID-19, BREXIT, Black Lives Matter and equality. 

We want to share your anger, your confusion, your excitement and your anxieties, making the Zine a space for activism but also a form of information. 

ARTISTS RESPONDING TO ...  is accepting submissions of drawings, paintings, sculptures, digital art, photography, articles, essays, poems, you name it! Get creative and use your power of expression to discuss something you care about.

There will be a rolling deadline of the 20th for every month, with submissions opening again on the 25th. The publication will be published and distributed on the 25th monthly.
