ARTISTS RESPONDING TO ...  create artist-led ongoing projects and run a monthly Zine, available free online, which use 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. 

Our Zine includes eclectic fine art and literature ranging from drawings, paintings, sculptures, digital art, photography, essays, poems, and much, much more! 

We accept submissions that are creative responses to current monthly news. A.R.T Zine is a space for activism but also a form of information. We pride ourselves in providing a space for critical discussion and reflection, whilst also creating opportunities for artists to share and celebrate their work.

As an artist, one of my greatest passions is combining personal and shared social, environmental and political anxieties within my practice. Artistic expression can help us to realise and reveal flaws in our society, whilst also allowing us to reinvent ways of living and imagine a future without those flaws. 

Now more than ever we need unity, community, a call for action and artistic expression. Hopefully you will find all of that here at A.R.T.

Thank you for your support.
