Collide Magazine

Philadelphia, PA, USA

Collide is a collaborative project born out of the idea to bring the intimate art of spoken word poetry and open mic culture to a larger stage. It is made by Philly  creatives FOR Philly creatives, with an objective to bring visual creators and writers together in a unique and exciting way that permanently records their stories.


Writers and visual artists that apply are matched with a partner for one spread of the zine, and if they are interested, can create new work based on each other's concepts.

Collide is proud to partner with Walls for Justice, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the community together through art, social justice, and local events. Each issue is available for purchase online and located in several Center City Philadelphia bookstores. For updates and future events, follow @collidezinphilly & @wallsforjustice.
