ABOUT THIS SITE:
Representations of youth from immigrant and ethnic minority backgrounds are usually created in the context of crisis, as so-called failures of integration, or as ethnicized trends in fashion and music. This is Worldtown aims to challenge this notion and the inauthentic representations of this generation which are often lumped together merely on the basis of race, religion or background.
As a webzine, This is Worldtown offers an edgy take on our collective yet varied experiences by providing features on politics, popular culture and individual perspectives.
GET INVOLVED! THIS BURGEONING COLLECTIVE IS…
This is Worldtown is directed by those who are part of this experience and we are always looking for contributors or tips as part of our burgeoning collective. If you’ve got a thing or two to say, contact us at info [at] thisisworldtown [dot] com. Send us your articles, artwork, videos, graphic designs, or sound bytes – whatever medium you choose to be represented by – and be featured on the site.
