our mission

antonym: a word opposite in meaning to another1

antonym was founded as space for people to process, reflect, imagine, create, and express. Amidst the current global crisis, creativity and connection are more important than ever. Lives have been thrown into unprecedented upheaval. With antonym, we seek to hold space that is, by definition, the opposite of the disarray, disconnection, and fear we’re collectively experiencing across the globe.

Although this is a place to process these looming, heavy emotions, you may also to leave them behind if you wish; it is space for you to feel whatever you need to feel, in whatever way is best for you.

Above all, we hope to elevate, amplify, and preserve the voices of this time and bring awareness to the people on the frontlines. Although we began antonym as a simple monthly newsletter in May 2020, we have since shifted towards publishing a bi-annual digital magazine. We hope that our vision continues to develop and evolve alongside yours over time.

To support us, submit and subscribe, and consider following us on social media; we hope you enjoy creating and viewing work that captures the spirit of the present.
