logo-antifragile-zineAntifragile Zine

We are a media platform and artist collective created by and for youth artists to document movements and change happening through art by youth right now. We are focused on highlighting and uplifting marginalized and underrepresented voices and creatives of color. This is a haven for youth artists to feel both safe, supported, and beautiful, as well as angry, loud, and heard. We are committed to giving a platform to voices that often get pushed aside, to tell the stories that go untold, and to start conversations that bring forward social change. We see the power in liberation, and will maintain a raw, strong voice for artists while also lifting them up.
