THe Future is always in motion
The Culture Crush was founded with the intention of grabbing stories right out of the world, the real world, and letting humanity speak for itself. Things are changing, if not falling apart entirely, and it is impossible to say that we are divorced from the current social and cultural conversations unfolding around us. However, it is this evolving context, which is now being filtered through social media and defined by the need to react, that makes our approach to storytelling more important than ever.
We believe that when you scratch the surface and dig a little deeper, our society continues to grapple with the same questions that it always has and that culture, itself, is the product of our interactions with the present moment situated within the context of the past and future. We refuse to have our pace and the topics we cover dictated by the news cycle or the demand for endless think pieces, all of which are inevitably either forgotten or irrelevant three days later. On the contrary, at The Culture Crush, our stories have a timeless quality and continue to remain relevant.
So what's next?
Since the success of our special 2017 Inauguration Issue, The Culture Crush has become even more sure in its purpose; that we are dedicated to navigating the richness of the world, and simply trying to make better sense of our puzzling, mixed-up society and its emergent creative expressions. Generally, that means bringing in a host of new authors and artists who share our passion for society and have stories to tell across a variety of media. We will be publishing pieces more frequently on our digital platform and, of course, we are most excited about the upcoming Spring broadsheet print edition.
Additionally, we are experimenting with new methods of engaging with our audience and interact with the community, online and offline. In the end, we hope we can shine a light on the values we share, while asking questions about the world around us. Not trying to find differences, but through these conversations, connect the dots between the simple things we all have in common.
