Rat World

Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland, Aotearoa / New Zealand

Rat World is an independent print magazine and collective all about platforming underground and underrepresented voices. We provide a space for minority creatives who have been traditionally left out of arts platforms, for emerging creatives wanting a place to discover their craft, and for creatives wanting to experiment with weird, off-kilter work. Inspired by old school New York punk and comix magazines, Rat World is all about bringing back the community spirit of old school print publications - our retro design style is reminiscent of this. Rat World also publishes individual zines from contributors, such as comic zines, photography zines and more. We are passionate about providing a space for underrepresented creatives in the print realm, and make efforts to showcase a range of creative work in the published form.
