About Incite

Est. 1997, Incite Magazine is McMaster University’s independent arts and culture publication featuring personal essays, fiction, poetry, commentary, research, interviews, sketches, photography, paintings, digital art, and more. We aim to foster the growth of a creative community promoting self-expression, collaboration, and dialogue within our university campus and city of Hamilton. Every aspect of Incite’s writing, graphics, layout, video, and event production is carried out by our wonderful student volunteers.

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.
