Starting with the Cupcakes & Champagne Brunch kick-off event Sunday, we want to raise $2000 to produce the zine issue and fashion show. Our budget will go towards printing costs, more pages, better quality, artist compensation and wider distribution.
Masconsumption started as a blog, and soon became a zine. After I came to New Jersey’s Valley Arts District 2 and half years ago I wanted to create something to chronicle the revival growing there and at ORNG Ink Studio for Emerging Artists.
Spring 2014’s Women’s Issue is the sixth Masconsumption publication and I couldn’t be more proud to be the editor of this zine. It has continued to be a collaborative project with the artists, writer, photographers and other talent existing in the Valley and has featured over 70 artists and collaborators.
The quarterly zine is produced and distributed in the valley arts district, located in Orange/West Orange, New Jersey. The release events are a way to engage the community, give featured artists and musicians exposure, collaborate, gain experience, network and of course have fun!
Last issue (Winter 2014’s The Music Issue) was released at Hat City Kitchen, with the first Hip Hop showcase in the Valley. The next issue, is dedicated to female empowerment, and will be released at a fashion show. This is the project we want you to be a part of!
