Eleni Uhoissatsana from Cyprus comes to terms with her nostalgia by making collages composed of her memories.

I was told I should publish more of my art but I never did, thinking that my scribbles are not worth the attention. Then I realized I had something to say, about myself…

Henry Buckley (a.k.a. Young Buckley) from Tokyo made a mixtape in honor of the late Rei Harakami, a Japanese electronic music composer.

I made this mix as a personal tribute to Rei Harakami, an electronic music composer from Kyoto, Japan. I first encountered Harakami’s music on Youtube and was immediately drawn to his unique soundscapes.

Although his music was detailed and complex, the sounds were still accessible to me, they felt welcoming and made me want to explore more of his works.

Daisy Wakefield (Bergen) writes about using her art to break taboos.

Lily Morgan (Brighton) writes on how zenism enhances her creative powers

For a long time, my work has been inspired by the Japanese philosophy of aesthetics: Wabi-sabi teaches us that imperfections, impermanence, and incompletion are the very essence of beauty. …

Asher Breuer-Weil (London) contests the lumping together all non-Western genres under one limiting term. He has kindly made us this playlist of songs that might be considered ‘World’ Music. Listen to while you read.

What comes to mind when you hear the term ‘world music?’ I imagine that it’s anything…

Maja and Jonathan have a hobby of recycling words. By hand, they cross out poems by others, to create their own on top of them.

To us the @blackoutpoet project is a fun hobby, a way of relaxing — it’s almost like meditating sometimes, sitting with a book page in…

Bas van Bemmelen (a.k.a. Batobe) from Utrecht turned his rejection into music.

After a girl cancelled a planned second date, I decided to turn the negative into something positive and use the few hours I would have been on a date with her into making a piece of music.
