Thanks for picking up Compass #74! We are very proud of this issue and are actually pleased to bring it to you because we didn’t kill ourselves making it for once. As we mentioned last month we are trimming the fat of the newsrag and tightening up our webzine scene. The latest in our streamlining process is the decision to feature ONE artist and ONE designer, creating a more cohesive look for each edition. If you are a serious designer, if design is your art, we want YOU. The whole newspaper could be your creative playground one month, scattered all the over the city by the thousands. Email [email protected] to join the layout team!
There are a few particularly radical opportunities available within the org at the moment such as Social Media Team and Art Attack Managing Editor, and we continue to realize more at our weekly meetings (mondays at Makeshift Boston!), all of varying degrees of commitment so we can get folks involved even if their free time is limited. We also offer internships if you crave that cred! For the totally new folks we are launching a new-volunteer night this month, a lo-presh hang where we’ll make collages, talk about cultural activism and introduce you to the org. This is going down at Farmer Horse Coffee on Mass Ave 4/5 (and every first Tuesday of every month) from 6-9pm.
All in all, the team has been very high on morale lately. We would love to have you join our strange ranks in any fashion: come to a meeting, come hang, go to a show and have your mind blown. Hop out the mainstream and into the freak creek, the water is chill.
-Emma, Rey and Sam
