Issue 2 Back Cover by Shanthony Exum

WELCOME to The Arts Politic, a print-and-online magazine dedicated to solving problems at the intersection of arts and politics. This stage for creative/political thinking features inspiring stories, groundbreaking reports, enlightening interviews, needed policybriefs and politically-minded art.

We publish the The Arts Politic as a print-and-online magazine with intermittent online posts. Both editions feature cultural policy, arts activism, political art, the creative economy issues, and the magazine has created a conversation among artists, activists, scholars, policymakers and idea-makers along the pendulum of global civic responsibility. We welcome essays, interviews, visual art and other works by emerging and established artists, scholars and citizens.

A forum for creative and political thinking, a stage for emerging art and a platform for social change, The Arts Politic provides a space that is intelligent, that is visionary, that is thoughtful, that continues to TAP new ideas from the frontlines.
