The Rituals issue,
AZEEMA is an Arabic name meaning: determination, resoluteness, firmness of purpose and strength. It’s short definition: brave, strong and courageous.
The Rituals (Tuqous طقوس) issue is a 240 page collection of stunning visual stories, personal and important written pieces and insightful interviews, featuring our UK-based and international community. Our fourth issue explores our individual roots, our unique histories and cultural nuances that bring us light and warmth. We delve into rituals, our resilience, our strength. From bukhoor (بخور), to food rituals, to Assyrian weddings and underground raves. This issue is a documentation of our existence and our fluidity in the UK and beyond.
This issue features the otherworldly artist Tsunaina, multi-faceted musician Rimon, multidisciplinary artist Nadine Mos, courageous pole dancer Neda (AKA Hijabiluscious) and many more.
