About this project
Wondering what a journal on city life & culture is all about? Here a sneak-peak of the content per city chapter. Enjoy!
OUR COLLECTIVE INTENTION
With teams of enthusiastic city correspondents, we're here to create an understanding of the cities we love and live in.
Citinerary creates daily online content on city life and culture from various cities, such as neighbourhood portraits, interviews with local heroes, reports on special events, trends and developments.
“We create or break perceptions. We’re here to observe, capture, show and share.”
OUR FIRST PRINT JOURNAL - ISSUE 1
From an online magazine to hosting local events, we decided it was time to launch our first print Journal, which we intend to produce twice a year.
The A City Made by People Journal Issue 1 will consist of five city chapters, each containing the best stories (both existing and never-before-seen content) from Amsterdam, Bucharest, Madrid, Minneapolis and Rotterdam.
The topics vary from architecture, art, design, events, food, neighbourhoods, the outdoors, photography, and many more. We will share the table of contents with you very shortly.
For the design and visuals, we have teamed up with a talented collective of designers, editors and photographers. Our crowdfunding movie has also been a collective effort by various filmmakers from our featured cities.
The Journal will contain around 200 pages, weight 700 grams, measure 210mm x 260 mm, and have a high print quality.
Meet our network of correspondents from Amsterdam, Bucharest, Madrid, Minneapolis and Rotterdam.
WHY ARE WE PUBLISHING A JOURNAL?
- To create more awareness around our purpose and the cities we love and live in.
- To create a vehicle for people to slow down and take the time to read valuable stories.
- To celebrate the network and the commitment of our correspondents.
- To inspire others to join our journey.

We are a network of unpaid volunteers who currently operate without the funds to publish a print journal ourselves. As a unified brand of citizens with #acitymadebypeople as our slogan, we decided that crowdfunding would be the most suitable way to collectively realise this project.
When you help us reach our target amount of €20,000, you will be helping us finish the design phase and move on to production, marketing and shipping Issue 1 of the A City Made By People Journal.

Our campaign will run for 35 days, which gives us time to mobilise the world to support our newest adventure. As we monitor the progress of the campaign, we will finalise all facets of developing the A City Made By People Journal.
After successfully finishing the campaign, we will start the printing and shipping process. We aim to deliver the Journal to you by early May 2016.
