to learn resilience is to learn to adapt, to be flexible: the ability to respond creatively to challenges and change. with challeges come opportunities; a condition of uncertainty can be seen as a chance to consider new methods of practice, to open new lines of enquiry, to dabble in related disciplines and indulge in peripheral exploration.

akin to the plant which flowers with more vigour under strain, some of the greatest examples of human innovation and creativity have emerged in response to challenging circumstances: manifestations of resilience.

mat.zine 11 calls for submissions which creatively exhibit, comment on, or explore the theme of resilience. submission should be original work: drawing, painting, photograph, articles, reviews, poetry, etc.

please send submissions to submissions.matzine@gmail.com 

closing date: sunday 22nd july 2012
