Introducing Issue 01 of ACV
Asset of Community Value are a print publication that believes in community care.
Facilitating and displaying the works of grassroots organisations and people who are engaged in community activity is the sole purpose of our work, with the aim to elevate those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to be heard.
ACV stands for “Asset of Community Value”. This term references the legislation wherein a building or piece of land is nominated for protection and preservation from development — instead being repurposed to benefit the social wellbeing and interests of a local community.
Always have a standing invite to contributors; they consider their magazine as a living memoir and want to help you tell the stories of your community.
ACV is committed to fostering inclusion, activism, and raising consciousness with a collaborative spirit.
We want everyone to be able to access a copy of the magazine. ACV will be offered at price points on a sliding scale, and we’ll provide the option to support our work further by donating. At present, we rely on donations to see our work represented in local libraries and community centres.
WHAT WILL YOUR CONTRIBUTION SUPPORT?
The money raised from this pre-order campaign will fund the writing, editing alongside the design, production, printing, and distribution of the book.
ACV is and will remain a non-profit organisation. Any money raised through our campaigns, funding, or partnerships will go directly to the creatives and contributors who produce the publication.
If we exceed our campaign targets or secure sponsorships, any additional funds will be funneled back into the production of the magazine.
We want to make ACV self-sustaining for future issues.
WHAT WE DO -
We’re creating a living archive of community through print and we’d like to broaden our work to include collaborative, real-space projects like events and workshops that can be documented as mementos for the publication while bringing people together.
Our work needs to give back to the communities we feature, so we’ll continually look for opportunities to do so.
Get in touch if you’ve got some ideas, we’d love to hear them.
