Good Trouble magazine

Good Trouble magazine The culture of resistance. www.goodtroublemag.com GOOD TROUBLE celebrates the culture of resistance, publishing stories from the intersection of arts and culture with politics and protest.

GOOD TROUBLE is a digital publication about the movements standing up and fighting for a better world. It looks through the lens of arts and culture at the stories of individuals and groups around the world pushing for equality, liberty, justice and climate sustainability. It celebrates resistance with all its beauty, humour and contradictions, because life is messy and serious business can be fun. GOOD TROUBLE is a cultural hub sharing interviews, stories, photos, features, art, documentaries, music and DIY projects – original, commissioned, edited and open to submissions. The site will also connect people to resources, communities, further information and established campaigning organisations. GOOD TROUBLE is about exploring, connecting, and using the power of stories to help build networks and amplify voices. It will be a process of discovery, experimentation, learning and probably a few mistakes along the way. If recent years have been defined by clickbait, echo chambers, propaganda and the collapse of meaning, then maybe the future needs to be about being smaller, direct, DIY and authentic. As the good Congressman and veteran civil rights leader John Lewis put it, it’s time for us all to make some ‘good trouble’. Let’s CELEBRATE the culture of resistance.

We will be deleting this fb page soon, as we can't really see a good reason to maintain it. (Yes, we just watched The Social Dilemma). We encourage you to find us on Twitter and Instagram (yeah yeah, we know, we know), where we post slightly more often and it's slightly more likely to be seen. So, to the 20 or so of our 800 followers here that will get to see this because we refuse to add paid promotion – thank you! And godspeed. Signing off, xo

Paddington Printshop — Good Trouble

In the mid-70s, in a disused taxi-meter factory in west London, a group of artists and designers opened Paddington Printshop. Specialising in making posters for local campaigns, the print shop quickly became a model of community activism, where anyone could come in to request a poster – though ‘nothing sexist, racist or commercial, please’

Infinite Detail: Tim Maughan — Good Trouble

“I’m always referring back to my formative years growing up in the 80s and especially the 90s, not with a desire to go back there, but with a sadness that the political and cultural futures we could see emerging were denied us by neoliberal capitalism. And now, of course, it increasingly feels like it’s going to deny us any future.”

Tim Maughan’s debut novel Infinite Detail paints a chilling future world of post-technological breakdown, threaded with hope, humanity and bass-heavy beats. But it isn’t really about the future – it’s about the present day, he told us via neural link This interview is taken from Good Trouble...

Taking History: Steve Schapiro — Good Trouble

Our interview with 85-year-old photographer Steve Schapiro, who photographed the civil rights movement, police aggression, segregation and racism, five decades ago. https://www.goodtroublemag.com/home/taking-history-steve-shapiro

When history was being made, he was there with camera in hand. At the outset of his remarkable six-decade career as a photographer, Steve Schapiro was responsible for some of the most iconic images of the American Civil Rights movement. Aged 85, he sat down with Florian Sturm (in 2019) to reflect on

'Coming-of-age against a back drop of post-war austerity and the explosion of colour that characterized the 1960s counter-culture in London, Penny Slinger embraced her generation’s quest for personal freedom and sexual liberation and channeled these desires into her ground-breaking collages and sculptures. So powerful was her vision that 45 years later her work is still influencing contemporary artists. In 2019, Penny was the subject of the documentary movie Out of the Shadows, directed by Richard Kovitch.' Penny Slinger Penny Slinger - Out Of The Shadows
