PRISM Mag
PRISM Mag is the arts & culture zine of the PRISM Collaborative, which will eventually develop into a physical periodical.

The PRISM Collaborative Group is a Brooklyn, New York based collective of groups curated to unify talented individuals under a singular brand where we dream and achieve the impossible, together or as individuals. PRISM Mag is an imprint of the PRISM Media Group, which is dedicated to our creative writing, journalism, and publishing divisions. PRISM Mag will consist of analysis, commentary, perspectives, reviews, and statements regarding topics in indie art, culture, and entertainment. Visit prismcollaborative.com/about to learn more.

Like PRISM, PRISM Mag is open to participation from anyone, as long as contributors welcome collaboration, creativity and diversity. We only require that entrants have an advanced understanding of some form of English language, knowledge in 2 or more forms of artistic expression or entertainment (i.e. rock music, off-Broadway theatre, afrofuturism), and are willing to commit to writing at least two pieces each calendar month. We currently publish both on Medium (Medium.com/PRISM-Mag) and our website (prismcollaborative.com/prism-mag) at this time.

Fifty54 Mag
FIFTY54 Mag is a Afrocentric publication featuring a creative collective of contributions from people of color. It is an independent operation by Chantel Watts, under PRISM Media of the PRISM Collaborative.

The Renaissance Project
The Renaissance— Rap and Hip Hop’s Progressive Publication is a project of PRISM Media, a section within the PRISM Collaborative, and it will be a daily digital zine on Medium beginning production this fall, in recognition of the 40- and 46-year marks of hip hop. As of now, all aspects of production will be managed by the PRISM Collaborative, led editorially by Juwan Holmes (Genius, Fifty54, Bustle, etc), a co-founder of the Humans of Hip Hop series. It will be anchored by the PhotoView, an innovative journalistic method which reproduces conversation with intriguing individuals alongside handpicked photography taken concurrently with the interview.
