Human Condition Magazine

A community-focused arts platform

Human Condition was a community-focused arts platform. As a team of 6 we published four 100-page publications, each of which focused on different topics, from Seattle's DIY culture, to the fallacy of the American Dream, and the intersection of arts and technology. Through each of these, we uncovered the stories of the Seattle arts scene by interviewing and featuring writers, dancers, poets, musicians, photographers, and artists.

But we didn't only tell stories. We brought people together. We hosted over 25 events from 2017-2020, from intimate artist workshops and co-working sessions, to a speaker series in collaboration with the Seattle Art Museum, to an 800 attendee block party to celebrate the release of our second magazine.

Human Condition gave me a space to collaborate with friends while experimenting with print and layout design, web development, art installations, and event programming. I'm eternally grateful to have worked with friends to make an impact in a city I care about so much.
