under the umbrella!

February 14, 2011

hey rain friends!

The past few months have been pretty exciting for the rain crew.  A bunch of youth have come together at the purple thistle centre to make a new zine called SLUG!!  The current collective is a mix of former rainers and a few brand new folks.   Maya and Mike Jo have stepped in to co-ordinate the making of this issue, which is fucking awesome of them!  As the process went on it was evident that this group was imagining something a bit different from RAIN’ZINE, so we put our heads together and decided that the best way to make this zine represent the folks making it was to re-name it.  And they did, it’s called SLUG! check it out. This new issue and launch party will be coming our way early March!

With the changes going on at RAIN, I realized that RAIN, while still small, low-to-the-ground, has moved beyond a one zine project, and that’s fantastic.  It is now a guerrilla art project, and with the soon out new zine, Slug – one under the umbrella of RAIN – I think we may have a radical micro (super micro) media/publishing project emerging and I couldn’t be happier.

in solidarity,
