As soon as we completed our BRICKS #7, The Rise Together issue, featuring more creatives and individuals than ever before and highlighting collective action, the world went into lockdown, learning to social-distance and work in isolation, away from our communities. The BRICKS team have been working remotely ever since – we haven’t sat together for around 8 weeks and had to invent new ways of producing content.
For this issue, we’re celebrating the creative community’s ability to adapt and evolve as well as our individual progression, before, during and beyond this current pandemic. How we have adapted and evolved since childhood, when we think we became our true selves and comfortable in our identity and sexuality, perhaps how we’ve accustomed in isolation, or maybe the risks we’ve taken to get to a better place, personally and/or professionally.
At BRICKS, we have always believed if you have a voice, use it. Now more than ever, we want to hear from you. We are casting for the portrait section of this issue and we are looking for exciting new talent who can speak about our issue theme from a unique perspective. If this is you and you would like to be featured in our next print issue, follow the guidelines below to send your application.
