Isla de Crear is a creative centre, combining a range of different disciplines in order to explore creating and crafting in a new method, away from commercial constraints or industry guidelines, based on the principles of the Fantasism manifesto. We are open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and only ask that you have a keen interest in pro-actively seeking the strange and unique connections, through interdisciplinary and international collaboration.

For our new call-out, we are looking for artists, craftspeople, thinkers and creatives from all different fields to explore the theme:

Call for Submissions: Zine-Anthology on Religion, Culture, and the State in South/west Asia

Şerābi is a forthcoming print zine-anthology dedicated to the complexities of religious, cultural, and national identity in South/west Asian communities & diaspora. We are particularly interested in work on liminal and/or syncretic regions, histories, and identities that transgress the boundary lines of states, religions, and religious states. We envision South/west Asia as beginning with the Anatolian Peninsula in the West, stretching across the Arabian peninsula and southern Central Asia, and ending with South Asia in the East. Artists and writers in diaspora are also encouraged to submit. We hope that by gathering our interconnected yet distinct experiences, we can foster a critical and justice-oriented understanding of heritage, spirituality, and place.
