“The rare scholars who are nomads-by-choice are essential to the intellectual welfare of the settled disciplines.” — Benoit Mandlebrot
REDEFINE magazine is dedicated to music and arts journalism that inspires conscious growth.
Through the use of interdisciplinary feature articles, community-minded events, and graphical web layouts, REDEFINE focuses on the utility of art beyond merely aesthetics. We explore how the arts influence and are influenced by other walks of life by connecting them with topics like charity work, literature, philosophy, science, spirituality, and politics — with the hope of creating a broad platform that inspires positive change.
The current incarnation of REDEFINE launched in the beginning of 2012.
REDEFINE is based primarily in the Pacific Northwest (Seattle and Portland), though we also have writers in other major U.S. cities and beyond.
We have an open solicitation policy and democratic model for arts coverage; anyone who sends us their work may have a chance of being covered. Please view our Submissions Policy for details.
