Before, we had STILL. Now we're excited to continue the story with Vol 23 Issue 2: HERE.

The McMaster community is still here, whether we’re on-campus or not. On Thursday, January 28 from 6:30PM-7:30PM EST, gather your creative juices and join us via Zoom for our next issue’s brainstorming meeting.

Here, you’ll get the chance to learn more about Incite’s submission process, bounce ideas off other contributors, get involved, and get inspired. Whether you’re completely new to Incite, or have been working with us for the past few years, we can’t wait to digitally see you!

Submission link (will have pitch form after Jan 28)

In putting out an issue called “HERE,” it feels especially important for us to recognize that the main McMaster University campus sits on the traditional territory shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and the Anishinabe nations, which was acknowledged in the Dish with One Spoon wampum belt. That wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need. Though the student body is scattered all over right now, it feels important to still reflect critically on what “here” means in the context of the campus we may be referring back to.

Rather than simply making this acknowledgement as a tokenized gesture, we would also like to reaffirm our publication's commitment to better serving the Indigenous peoples and the land through the creative works that we showcase in our publication, the voices that we strive to amplify, and the spaces and initiatives that we create.

As we have showcased in a previous newsletter, we are currently working with MSU Diversity Services to publish "Soapbox," a zine centred on Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour voices; interested BIPoC folks can go to the links at https://linktr.ee/incitemagazine or below for more information and to submit your work. This is not the end of our work, however; we are committed to creating artistic spaces for Indigenous students specifically with our platforms and within our staff teams. While creating specific platforms for BIPoC creatives, we also hope that all of the other initiatives, events, and content that we have or will put out (such as "HERE") also function as spaces for art and advocacy, self-expression and solace, existence and resistance.
