Time for a change…

February 3, 2010

dear RAIN‘zine folks,

It saddens me to announce that we will no longer be publishing the analog zine, Rain. Anita and I feel like we have completed what we set out to do and that it’s time to move on to other projects.  We’ve had a great time making rain‘zine and would like to give a big thanks to all the folks who have helped in putting it together!  Indeed,  we could not have done it without their passion, ideas and love (check out rainy day people on here to read more about these talented folks).  Also, it was especially great because we got to meet so many amazing people!

The mandate for rain was to build community,  get people engaged in dialogue about social change in their ‘hoods, AND to be all ages!  Due to the magnificent community that joined in with rain, as contributors, readers, and makers, we feel like we have accomplished that mandate and we thank everyone who took part in making our dream a reality!

We plan to keep the webpage going, and will have guest bloggers now and again and write about our newest project: Radical Art In Nature: Guerrilla Arting that will run out of the Purple Thistle Centre!

So, please check us out from time to time!  And one day there just might be an issue number five 🙂

For now, it’s time to be on the streets with our communities making art and culture.  Email us to find out more about this new exciting project.

Peace,
Carla and Anita

What is Rain?

May 19, 2008

Rain is an independent Vancouver journal/zine, run by a group of local 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! (more…)
