Emerge is a platform for artists, writers, and organizers who are imagining possible futures. It celebrates the in-between moments while asserting that the emerging can occur at any age and at any pace.
This issue features a collection of interviews, essays, and features that explore how personal practices and collective endeavors can revel in the (sometimes uncomfortable) processes associated with growth. We’ve included a special section edited by our emerging Boston Art Writing Fellows on the subject of care.
This issue also also debuts an all new brand and print layout designed for increased readability. We can’t wait to share this very special issue with you!
