New Magazine Celebrates Life and Creativity in Northern Ireland



Do you ever feel you want to read more empowering stories in a time of grim predictions for the future of our planet? For positive news in a world where fear sells papers, for slow journalism, for celebrating roots and for supporting sustainable and socially responsible lives, a new magazine is on its way. Freckle magazine is dedicating itself to celebrating the people, landscapes and livelihoods of Northern Ireland and beyond. 

It is about people who are carving out their own stories; a space to tell positive stories, to ask what actually gets people out of bed, and to document and delve into the spirit of our times. The first issue will have articles that explore Northern Ireland’s landscapes, our food system, the concept of belonging, boatmaking, cycling, music, architecture and more: stories of some the most creative and courageous people in Northern Ireland.

The team at Freckle want to make something beautiful for people to read, a print magazine that is part of the conversation asking how we can live sustainably and peacefully in Northern Ireland. And they are not alone. In just over two weeks they have raised over 80% of their crowdfunding campaign to print the first issue, due out in January 2015. 

Check out their Kickstarter page (with a two minute introduction video) and keep an eye on their website for more news in the future.
