Publishing the Present – call for submissions!

Repost from our friends at the Libby Leshgold Gallery and Wendy’s Subway


As part of Wendy’s Subway’s residency at READ Books and the Libby Leshgold Gallery at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, we’re assembling an online archive of independent publications that respond to this contemporary moment of international urgency.>We’re looking for submissions of print or digital publications via our open call form! In centering the work of independent publishers, we strive to document how creative networks have produced and disseminated urgent, nuanced, and collective responses that contribute to sociopolitical change on local and international scales. Mapping the intersections between social movements, activist efforts, emergency response, mutual aid, protest, resistance, and artists’ publications provides a framework for a broader consideration of the role of creative and critical publishing practice in facilitating social transformation.
