Description

The Khidr Collective is a UK-based multidisciplinary arts collective of writers/artists/activists. We produce the Khidr Collective Zine, an annual print magazine that showcases the work of Muslim and marginalised artists.

We are currently working on our fourth issue on the theme of water. We are looking for fiction, non-fiction, visual art and more, to pay homage to this essence of existence. We are particularly looking for unconventional art forms and encouraging creative approaches to this prompt.

A source of life and death. A tool of coercion and control. Water is indispensable. It traverses time and carries memory. We’ve gazed into it entranced by its beauty, and we’ve sought immortality from it. We use it for our daily ablution, and we cleanse our loved ones with it as they move from this world to the next. Our ancestors crossed mountains searching for it, its seas have been split for salvation, it has formed the Middle Passage of unimaginable suffering, and our contemporaries still fight to access its pure form.

Deadline: Monday June 15th, 2020.
