Issue 02:
Stories of Healing








To heal is to soften, but it is no soft feat.

Issue 02: Stories of Healing is an experimental collection of thirty-five creatives – from writers and poets to artists, illustrators, and photographers – who have unfurled themselves and the world around them through their practice.  

Find: An interview between Ayebatonye Abrakasa and Genesis Owusu on learning to sit within the flames of race, identity and anger. Ben Freeman pens a love letter to the queer rite of passage; the STI clinic. Lucia Tường Vy Nguyễn and Amy Kennett’s collaborative essay and photographic exploration of salving trauma through dreams. A moving ode to regeneration following the Black Summer bushfires by acclaimed First Nations poet, Dakota Feirer. A painted series by Tiarna Herczeg, capturing the longing of living off-Country. A hilariously absurdist script by the dynamic duo, Garden Reflexxx, unravels the mysteries of Gay Beach Town.

Amongst the many explorations, one thing is clear – we're all healing from something.
