We care about the West Coast art community a lot.

If you’re here, you know how important is is to elevate, connect, and fund arts communities throughout the West Coast. Together, we can grow integral arts discourse that thrives on trust and resource sharing. 

As an independent online magazine, consistent monthly income is vital to paying writers and artists sustainable wages.
