The Radical Art Review is a platform harnessing shared creative potential to build radical, progressive social change. Now in our seventh issue, SOLITUDE, 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 10.
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.

We're always looking to expand and diversify our team and editorial output. If you want the opportunity to be involved in editing a section of our site, get in touch. You'll receive training from NCTJ-accredited journalists, press passes, and a supportive team.
You can even invent your own section, if you want.
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.
Although we are currently unable to compensate our contributors, we hope to offer this as soon as possible, as our audience grows and we work towards our long-term goal of becoming a non-profit radical publisher.
