THE OUTPOST #4 presentation with editor-in-chief Ibrahim Nehme @ NEWSCENTRE March 26th 18:30


Editor-in-chief of The Outpost Ibrahim Nehme will be presenting the new issue at Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum on Wednesday March 26th from 18:30. He will be joined by food writers Merijn Tol and Nadia Zerouali for a Q&A session. Merijn and Nadia will be also bringing in some Middle Eastern appetizers.
The Outpost is a Beirut-based independent magazine about possibilities in the Arab world. It was named by the Guardian as “a successor to the Economist”. Since its launch in 2012 it it has grown a lot and gained a good reputation in the media across the world.

We are proud to have Ibrahim Nehme in the store next Wednesday and hope you will be able to make it to this gathering around one of our favourite titles. There will be drinks and snacks.

Ibrahim will appear at the Facing Pages congress in Arnhem two days after (March 28th) for a talk about how magazines can change the world. www.facingpages.org. We will also be present there with a pop-up store.


“The Outpost is my new favorite magazine. It is, overall, an impressive package—interesting and relevant reportage, beautiful design and graphics, with a mission to make change in a volatile, emerging region. Even if you aren't much interested in changing the Arab world, this magazine will make you think about where you personally stand and, through its stories and reports, make you think about what is possible in your life.”

— Dan Rowden, Founder, Magpile

"You rekindled a dream I had, and made me believe again in the future, I felt connected and somehow it wasn't just us, but everyone you were writing about felt exactly the same. In every single interview I have had, they asked me what made you start Rowayat... The answer is simple .... The Outpost."

— Sherine el-Banhawy, Founder of Rowayat, a new literary publication from Egypt

NEWSCENTRE @ FACING PAGES 2014


MAKE MAGAZINES NOT WAR 
We will be present with a pop-up store at FACING PAGES 2014, the biggest independent magazine biennale in Europe.
March 28 & 29 - please drop by for the symposium and exhibition we partly curate.



www.facingpages.org

In the sixties the slogan ‘Make love not War’ was used by hippies who tried to find new attitudes towards society. With doing so, they made a straigt message to autority; something needs to change. We think independent magazines are a contemtporary tool to do just that: find new attitudes for change. Two important attitudes surfaced the past few years within the magazine-scene: Activism and Escapism. Equally strong, they both take a refreshing approach towards the world we live in, compressed in print, spread out and shared with a broad variety of readers.


Activism vs Escapism

The first day of the symposium will focus on activism; speakers will talk about the power of punk, the clash with society, and finding a new vocabulairy to talk about sensitive subjects. The second day of the symposium revolves around escapism as an ode to fiction, a safe get away and a tool for personal growth. With both themes as a starting point, our speakers will show you  how independent magazines keep on developing new insights into our contemporary culture and how they express these themes in design, storytelling, publishing and fiction. At Facing Pages editors, designers, journalists, writers and other magazine lovers meet and inspire eachother.
