A new project with the goal of sharing creative works made by the Kingston community with the Kingston community.

Working in close partnership with D.R.A.W. Kingston, we hope to produce an inclusive arts and literary journal that highlights diverse perspectives and mediums, and makes art more accessible to all. We are proud to be part of such a vibrant and unique city, and SHOW and TELL aims to both contribute to and reflect Kingston’s rich artistic landscape.

Submissions are due 4/8/24.  4/22/24
