We would like to acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional owners and custodians of this continent that was never sold nor ceded and whose civilisations are among the oldest in human history. We are honoured to live and work on the ancestral lands of the Darug people of the Eora nation and pay our respects to Elders past and present.
The Pvblication is challenging existing metanarratives, critically and empathetically. Passing on passivity, we are amplifying the voices that go unheard, stories that remain untold and concepts left unexplored.
Forget decolonising space, we are decolonising experiences.
With our individual and collective identities becoming increasingly intricate we want to make ourselves accountable for the media we consume. The word ‘minority’ has lost all meaning. It can’t define our differences in the same way it can’t unite our shared experiences. There is a gap between the language that is used and the language that we need.
In these silences we are listening.
They say to create the things you wish existed, so let’s stop performing our differences and just write. Pieces that feed the soul and challenge the mind. Art that grows our optimism. We will interview thoughtfully, research indulgently and read excessively.
Most of all, we will never write beyond the scope of what we know and we will continue to speak to, but never for, each others triumphs and struggles. We hope our pieces will leave you inspired and that you’ll help us create a space that is undeniably yours.
