Introducing Boat

Here’s an interesting idea for a magazine. Boat Studio is a small creative studio based in London, but twice a year they up sticks and relocate to a different city. But not any old city: “We don’t just go anywhere, we go to places that have been overlooked or overshadowed by incidents in the past, and we work with local and international writers, photographers, illustrators and artists to update our readers’ ideas about a particular place.”

I’m not sure whether they’ve done this relocating thing in the past, but I do know that they’ve just been to Sarajevo, and they’re preparing the first issue of Boat magazine right now. It’s due out on 1 May, with a pretty outstanding list of contributors to boot.

There’s going to be a story by Dave Eggers, an interview with Bosnian film director Danis Tanovic and a piece by author Sophie Cooke. Oh, and to coincide with the launch of Boat, they’re guest editing the back section of surf/skate/snow magazine Huck. Sounds like they’re going to be busy!
