Submit to Repurposed

coverCURRENT CALL-OUT FOR SUBMISSION TO ISSUE THREE OF REPURPOSED: 

Issue Three of Repurposed will be themed around engagements with spatial appropriation. I think about how we perceive ownership of space, personal, civic, etc. and then am confronted, almost daily, with ways in which that ownership or even the notion of ownership has been challenged, confronted or merely highlighted. Any and all of these are ways in which to enter the particular space I wish to inhabit for Issue Three, I am certain there are many other ways as well. As always this call-out is open to interpretation, but remember that this magazine has a mandate, art from repurposed materials, so please read our guidelines below before submitting.

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: JANUARY 30TH 2016
