Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
We see storytelling as a way of deepening solidarity and imagining the possibility of an otherwise. We practice storytelling through ethnographic research, activism, fiction and non-fiction writing, poetry, and visual essays. We cultivate and practice storytelling as the narration of the ordinary and everyday life. We believe in stories that speak for themselves without statements of intent or objectives of argument. We believe that our narrations should not be constrained by jargon, theoretical frameworks, and standardised formats. We want stories to narrate and show, entertain and move, inform and denounce. We want to share stories that achieve depth, generate journeys of empathy and solidarity, and challenge the most entrenched assumptions of today. We see Otherwise as an interface between storytellers of the ordinary within and outside academia, activism, professional writing, visual arts, and areas of life and work where opportunities for storytelling remain limited. By sharing stories, we aim to foster conversations on the power of storytelling as a means of turning the ordinary into a space for imagining and pursuing an otherwise.
