Need some inspiration and positivity in your life? Our brand-new Autumn Issue 45 is here to help!
We speak to our coverstar, broadcaster, actor and author Faustina Agolley (painted by Sydney-based artist Kim Leutwyler for a portrait included as a finalist in the 2019 Archibald Prize), about identity, sexuality and belonging; hear from three Australian organisations working to help make refugees and asylum seekers feel welcome; meet the grandmothers snorkelling to help protect venomous sea snakes; talk circular fashion with Courtney Holm, founder of ethical label A.BCH; delve into the labour issues behind the production of the ubiquitous cashew nut; and explore how getting in touch with our emotions can help us save the planet.
Plus you’ll find tips for adding more plants to your plate; a photography project aiming to reduce the stigma around periods; advice for being more mindful at work; climate activist Anna Rose’s advice for ways you can help combat climate change; three grounding autumnal projects that’ll encourage you to get back to nature; illustrator Luke John Matthew Arnold’s activist art; chaos and colour with ethical label Variety Hour; an eco travel guide to the tiny Sunshine Coast town of Yandina; a free sewing pattern for the transeasonal robe jacket of your dreams; and so much more!
And don’t forget: we print each issue in Australia on carbon-neutral paper and offset all production emissions through Carbon Neutral’s reforestation biodiversity project, which works with traditional land owners to revegetate degraded farmland with native trees for carbon sequestration. Plus we plant a tree with every new subscription!
