Black Thorn is a publication focused on the creative spirit inherent in radical DIY culture. Our mission is to create and distribute a paper that reflects the lives we actually live, and provides a vehicle for independent thought, which is reflective of who we are as people. It will be about opening doors, exchanging ideas, taking charge of our lives and the piss and vinegar spirit which courses through our veins. We choose to focus less on the musical aspects of d.i.y. and more on the lifestyles, ethics, skills and ideas that enable us to live with increasing independence and self-reliance from the dominant culture. We want to see the whole of who we are: serious and funny, deep and shallow, ugly and beautiful.
We are in need of well written articles, reliable news, updates, upcoming events, original art, printing and art supplies, donations and ideas. We would also like to see a skillshare/classified section in future issues. We are looking for content within the wide spectrum of DIY and want to provide a link to international ideas, perspectives and happenings. We encourage all types of writings and contributions, but can't guarantee it will be printed. We can only guarantee it will be reviewed and a collective decision made on each submission.
If your interested in contributing or would be interested in helping out with fundraising, distribution or supporting this project in other ways....get in touch.
