What is your Random Act of Creativity? Founded by Yara Akkari, OPEN SPACES is an independent bi-annual print magazine which explores the connection between art, travel and the outdoors. Now more than ever we crave open spaces, and through this print magazine we hope to share our journeys and to inspire our readers.
What is your creative mission? I believe in the power of print, in an age where everything has become digitized and people are glued to their phones, I want to bring an emphasis back to print magazines, in a sustainable and conscious way, via these long-term passions of mine, and expose the power and beauty of remote travel and to experience art outside the confines of gallery walls. I have always loved connecting with people on a local level, and I hope that through OPEN SPACES I can encourage people to explore and discover a location from a new perspective, by taking the time to enjoy the journey (and not only the destination!) and connect with a community.
