[ ] Mag is an all womyn, femme, and non-binary collective founded in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We started in 2018 with the goal of creating a platform for art to live in our community. We aim to showcase, support, and celebrate the art of our contributors and to break down barriers for womyn in the arts.
Our collective is at the core of what we do. We understand the gravity and importance of our mission and work to give power to the collective's voice.
We ground every decision in our core values and goals.
1. We break down social constructs. [ ] understands the severity of social constructs on artists and we work to not only give our artists a voice, but also to create a safe space for art to live.
2. We believe that we are stronger together. Our goal is to not only create meaningful content together, but to support one another with our own individual work and projects.
[ ] Mag is a submission-based zine published both online and in-print. [ ] Mag has no rules or guidelines. We select what will go in the volumes by what speaks to us the most. We don’t attach names of artists to works, in hopes of not deterring them from submitting their more personal work. We encourage all femme/non-binary identifying persons to submit their work including: painting, drawing, writing/poetry, photography, graphics, collages, and everything else in between.
[ ] events
The [ ] collective strives to create events for our publications that showcase the talent and contributions of our collective. These events include Zine release parties, album releases, galleries, fashion shows, concerts and many more
