About RAIN

What is RAIN?

Rain is an independent anthology zine, a radical art project and we do a whole lot more!  We run out of the Purple Thistle Centre and are run by a group of local Vancouver activists who enjoy life, love, and Vancouver rain. Since the rain in Vancouver tends to get people a little down, we thought we’d make a zine to show why we like the rain! We care about our community, and our zine is our way of opening a dialogue about living, learning, and creativity in Vancouver – things to help us get by on a rainy day. We support taking steps towards action, building our community and making change happen.

  1. Strange Places » the crows: quiet as shadows Says:

    […] I have felt the need for the unproductive productive time. The time where we re/juvenate, re/charge, re/claim silences, and spaces that nurture us. So that is what I am doing today: inbetween the raindrops and the kids’ calls. I am also trying to get one submission out a week, if I can manage. I have not done too well lately, but knowing I should be doing one a week keeps the pressure on. That way I may end up with two or three a month. A couple of places I ran into this weekend and wold like to share with you. The Raven Chronicles: A journal of art literature and the spoken word and Full of Crow. The Raven Chronicles does themed issues. Full of Crow/Poetry does not need to be about crows. I did send them something with crows, since I am minding my crows these days. With a name like that how can I resist the temptation? And then there is R.A.I.N. […]
