nous magazine is a Manchester based, self-published, collaborative publication that seeks to open up dialogue about issues surrounding mental health. Through short stories, poetry, photographs and other art mediums, nous encourages people to reject the stigma associated with mental health and instead to engage with it creatively.
To be published in collaboration with MUTO collective over the next year, the theme of the fourth issue of the magazine will be MISUNDERSTANDING. Thinking about a variety of social themes, including sexuality, mental health, politics, identity and social background, MUTO and NOUS have put out an open call for submissions of artworks to the issue (interviews, essays, flash fiction, poetry, photography, short stories up to 2500 words etc.):
To accompany the misunderstanding/malentendu project, an online platform is being developed which will feature, in part, an audio-visual playlist of content relating to or inspired by the theme. Contributions to this creative database – songs, books, films, quotes, video clips etc – are also being accepted.
