The Mass is a monthly online collection of discursive art, articles, opinions, prompts, thoughts, and questions, gathered in response to global issues. Released on the last day of each month, the Mass aims to provide a space for reflection, criticism, and a platform for art as activism.

The Mass is a non-monetised publication (we are not down with the capitalist agenda), and is free to access by all. Everyone is welcome to submit to the Mass: artists, thinkers, writers, worriers – people with opinions prepared to be critical. All we ask that submissions are offered in a spirit of openness.

The February Mass theme - SYSTEMATISED: Boxes, systems, codes which try to define us, and how we refuse them. 

We are a non-monetised publication. No money comes in – we do not sell anything, and we do not advertise. All our costs (web hosting, email, storage) are provided as donations in-kind by the editors, who give their time freely. We do not offer payment for work featured in the Mass, however we also do not offer or endorse “payment in exposure” as we believe this undermines the value of creative work.

We ask that those who wish to submit work to us do so in a spirit of generosity, volunteering their voice, alongside ours, for the cause.

Each month revolves around a theme, feel free to respond to this theme, or any current event for the month in which you are applying.

We accept all types of work (text, audio, video, visual, ephemeral, surprise us). Please make sure when selecting your files you are sending the highest quality version you have available.

We welcome texts and work in all languages, but please also provide an English translation (the texts will be featured side-by-side)

​Before submitting work to be featured in the MASS, we ask that you read, and are happy with, our three requests:

I.  Please submit work that you are happy to publish. We welcome works in progress, half-finished thoughts, drafts and re-imaginings. However, please make sure you are happy for your submission to be published online, and for other people to see it.

II. Please submit work that is yours to submit. If you are submitting work with multiple authors/creators, please ensure that everyone is happy for the work to be featured in the MASS. If any dispute arises over the authorship of a work (whether text, image, video, etc.), it will have to be removed from the publication. 

III. Please submit work in the spirit of openness. We aim to create a space for creativity, conversation, and provide a platform for art as activism. We welcome work which is inflammatory, poignant, difficult, and obscure. However, submissions which are deliberately discriminatory (in whatever capacity), which undermine the autonomy of others, or which cause harm to those who are vulnerable, will not be published.

Along with your submission please send the appropriate name and title which you wish it to be published under, a date of the creation of the work, and any other information you would like to appear next to your publication.  

Submissions can be withdrawn at any time, before publication. If you wish to withdraw your work from publication after the publishing date (last day of each month), please contact us directly.

Submit works through CuratorSpace.

Submissions will always close 4 days before the last day of the month, notifications of inclusion will be sent as soon as possible.
