With Chicago being a birthplace and breeding ground for all sorts of art, my roommate and I are two creatives who decided to combine our capabilities through a magazine that concentrates on the abundant talent around us. Through interviews, articles and events we aim to capture other’s stories, their visions, and what they bring to the table. Being two women of color, we are especially focused on the unique skills that can be found in oft - overlooked minorities and their outlooks. We believe in representation, in imagination, in vulnerability. We believe in collaboration and activism and creatives lifting up other creatives. we are matchbox magazine.
