The many moods of Abstract.

   It’s hard not to notice Abstract magazine when it appears, free, in your favorite café, bar or gallery---the quarterly magazine is so unique in look and feel.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s because people took them, which is what they’re supposed to do.  In our ongoing series on alternative media in Hawai’i, today, HPR’s Noe Tanigawa offers a look at Abstract magazine.     

Abstract and Kumu Kahua will team up with Bamboo Ridge for a community writing project in the Bamboo Ridge tent at the Hawai’i Book and Music Festival this weekend.  

Abstract is always looking for supporters, advertisers and subscribers!  It is offered free of charge at 60 locations on O'ahu where creatives gather, including at state libraries.   If you see something you like in Abstract, they can put you in touch with the creators.
