Bricoleur - Issue One - Front Cover

 

Bricoleur Mag is a print magazine that focuses on specific themes every 3 months, and features works of current and past members of Gallery Six, a free studio space for fresh graduates at The Old Truman Brewery.

You must be curious to what Bricoleur may mean, well let us tell you.. “Bricoleur is a French term which means: “a person who starts something with no clear plan, adding bits and bobs here and there while flying by the seat of their pants.” We think this describes us, and certainly most fresh creative graduates like us, pretty well. We have one clear plan, though. To create meaningful artwork and help our fellow artists by providing a professional platform for them; Bricoleur, that is!

Bricoleur was born on a cold evening in Gallery Six, mixing adventurously flavours of beer and pistachio nuts (as one does), talking about how we cannot bear the thought that all the work Gallery Six artists create could so easily get lost in the creative noise of London.
As you must know, to get your foot in the door in the creative industry is quite hard. You probably know how the story goes: graduation, hunt for an entry level job, waves of rejections or unpaid jobs for months while trying to stay on top of your absurdly expensive London lifestyle (if you would call paying rent, topping up your Oyster card and hunting for cheap bread a life “style”). Yeah, you get the jist.

So, our aim is to provide exposure to the wonderful and talented artists from Gallery Six. Each artist will create something in response to specific themes we chose for each issue.
The very first of which will be focusing on World Conversation, Creativity and The Condition of the Mind: three topics that we feel are relevant and will engage our artists and grab the attention of our readers.

Bricoleur will come to you as a A4 print magazine, 52 pages on 120gsm recycled paper because we love this planet and our unborn grandchildren.

 The Future

Your investment directly supports Issue One, but it is also so much more. It not shows that you also support the ideas the drive us to create Bricoleur and get Issue One underway, but your contribution will also help us with the preparation of Issue Two.

In Issue Two we will feature another generation of Gallery Six members, more interviews, collaborations and so much more following the theme, Journey.

A journey of course means something different to all of us. Weather it is your daily commute, or getting on dozens of flights a year, not stopping to think for a moment - because that's how you operate. It could mean a mental journey within yourself or a journey through time and history or histories...

Issue One is only the first step in our journey to realise our dream of making Bricoleur grow and to eventually work on it full-time. We won’t stop on page 52 next time, but we’ll expand the zine and constantly improve its content with more spreads and deeper curiosities.

Let's all go on a trip. Starting here, with your help and with Issue One.


Best, 

Bricoleur Team x


... And we are infinitely grateful for Gallery Six, without them none of this would have happened!

All the money made from this campaign will be going towards printing costs and distribution.

Risks and challenges

After the completion of the Kickstarter campaign the zine and rewards will be sent to print immediately (this will take a couple of weeks to happen). After that the packaging and distribution can begin effectively and we aim to post orders by the end of June/beginning of July. As with any new venture there are risks but as long as funding goes to plan there should be no major challenges.
