Take Up Space is a creator collective building culture through media and community experiences. We come together in seasons: dreaming, exploring and co-creating work that makes us feel most alive. In this season, that work is culminating in the form of this Zine.

In these pages, we explore the crossroads between technology, community and culture. The theme ‘Technology of Togetherness’ is a phrase coined by Emma Warren, a prolific London writer and broadcaster. Guided by Emma’s instructions (‘make what you can, it’s enough’ and ‘your story contextualises ours’), we embarked on this journey with an open call, asking questions like:

☾ Can technology heal and connect like minded people?
☾ What are the impacts of emerging technology on culture?
☾ How does our notion of care evolve in an increasingly digital world?

The result is a cozy collection of essays, interviews, poetry, and art – forever captured in time through printed matter. 𝓈𝓁𝑜𝓌 𝓂𝑒𝒹𝒾𝒶 for culture-makers.
