The Radical Art Review is a print and web magazine where art meets activism. Now in our eighth issue, PRECIPICE, we're an independent media outlet focused on building a democratic artistic counterculture in a world fractured by anxiety, prejudice, and systems thinking.
Founded in 2017 with the long-term mission of democratising art and culture writing, we have grown from a blog run by two people to a print and digital platform staffed by an all-volunteer team of nine.
We publish all sorts: from full-length investigative features into the artists at the forefront of political change, to ASMR gaming podcasts, artist interviews, underground poetry, videos, and more.
We accept pitches of any kind, be they creative or journalistic.
We abide by the NUJ Editor's Code of Conduct. Find out more
Want to contribute? We are accepting pitches exploring contemporary social and political concerns through art and culture.
Has a film excited a feeling in you for social change? Did a recent album inspire a new sense
of political empowerment?
We are looking for 500-1000 words on these themes.
We are also always keen to collaborate with and celebrate artists working across all mediums.
If you would like to share your creative work on our site, or discuss the ideas that drive you to make, please get in touch.

As a non-profit co-operative, we are fully powered by a small team of volunteers.
We are reader-funded. We recently launched the Radical Art Club, a member-based supporter model that gives our readers free print copies, free access to our events, a seat on our advisory AGM, and contribution opportunities to our newsletter. Find out more.
We also receive grant funding on an issue-by-issue basis and offer creative print advertising.
