Dose Magazine is a printed artifact created to showcase young and talented artists, musicians, writers and thinkers. 

In the hopes of creating a cross disciplinary collaboration we want to produce a project which we will hope will shape and form to fit the changing landscape of our culture. It is intended to live very much outside of just the printed form with the accompaniment of concerts and an online presence. In addition to working with artists and musicians, we also are collaborating with businesses for shows, web designers, graphic artists, and printers.

THE IDEA

My friend Sean Dwyer and I had came up with an idea to showcase all our talented friends in a printed format. We thought it would be interesting to revolve each release around a party that presents all the contributors in a live setting. We thought a merging of arts, music, photography, writing and other sources could come together to hang out for a night as well as live in a printed edition. 

THE PLAN

We worked for about 2 months getting enough artists and musicians together to come out with enough for our first magazine. By contacting local business partners, we assembled enough funds to self publish 250 copies. Sean Dwyer contacted the bands and dealt with much of the managing, while I designed the magazine and contacted artist. 

EXECUTION

We hosted our Release party in Georgetown at Machine House Brewery. They were kind enough to let us display art, play live music, and hang out for an evening. The art also displayed for 2 weeks.
