The Hillscene Maga'zine

Burrinja is excited to work in partnership with The Hillscene to produce a stunning quarterly Maga'zine and Online Blog.

The hillscene Magazine - Editors and Graphic Designers Call Out!

A maga’zine’ about all the interesting people and things happening in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, south east of Melbourne. With creative design and interesting articles it’s a rockin' read.

In 2019, The Hillscene is extending the opportunity to designers and editors to be part of our team. Are you interested in editing, writing, or self-publication? Or are you a graphic designer keen to get creating? This is your chance to be guest editor and/or designer for a cherished local magazine.

For each issue next year, there will be a different guest editor & designer. You will be provided with templates, mentoring and a team of volunteer writers & photographers. There will be a small fee paid for each of the roles. There are four issues each year, one for each season!

If you are interested in either opportunity, please complete the expression of interest form by Feb 1, 2019.

The Expression of Interest form can be found here at  www.hillscene.com.au

Since 2013, Hillscene, under the creative guidance of editor and designer Adriana Alvarez, has become a widely recognised and much sought after quarterly publication – the little zine that can, with a reputation that far exceeds its size and distribution. This self-published zine is for anyone in the Dandenong Ranges region with an interest in cutting edge design, fashion, art, music, performance, food and street style on the fringe, all overlayed with the ethos of a community that cares passionately about its environment as well as the aesthetic.

In short, Hillscene fits right into Burrinja’s mission – BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH ARTS!

So we have joined with Adriana to support her in bringing this great publication to the region, and with plans to grow it further. In October we launched the Hillscene Blog, expanding our content beyond the quarterly to regular articles and reviews including special guest contributors, young writers and digital art.

Best of all, Hillscene is free because we like free, quality, creative and innovative stuff that is accessible to everyone! Grab a copy today from Burrinja or any of the other great cafes, shops and art spaces in the hills. The current and past issues can also be viewed online here.
