A Magazine for

Issue 99 June 2016

One more mag and we’ll be at the 100th issue milestone. We are still planning what form that will take, but we will definitely be printing a magazine in July, rather than being online only as usual, so keep an eye out.

It’s a great pleasure to have Scottish graphic artist Robbie Porter back on our pages for issue #99. His warm sense of humour has been missed since we first featured his work in December 2013. You can read more about Robbie and his art on page 36.

Elsewhere, we’ve got interviews with Jared P Scott, writer and director of climate film The Age of Consequences, which is premiering at Doc/Fest this month, composer and producer Ben Lukas Boysen, and Karen Sherwood, who told us about HillsFest, Hillsborough’s new festival of art, music and culture.

If you read something in the magazine that you disagree with, or you feel you have something to say which isn’t being covered, please do get in touch. We are always open to welcoming in new writers from all areas of the city.
