Brush off the traces of the last night’s glitters and get off on the right foot. Today is the start of the new year, new month, and new topic.

There is a lot of diss floating around aimed at the now last year and to be completely honest, yeah, certain things got mucked up quite a bit. But do not let that discourage you. According to certain numerological interpretations, 2k16 has seen a closure of one cycle in the society, some things have been planted, some things have grown, and other have passed away. This year should be the beginning of a new cycle, a chance to foster what have been sown and let it grow into a new, healthy plant. Sounds pretty optimistic, easier said than done, though. That’s why we chose POWER as the topic for this crucial month of the new beginnings.
This issue will showcase artists and creators reflecting on the concept of power – either examining its dynamics, uses and abuses, or moulding it into a creative energy to empower others. Maybe you got out of bed with somewhat unsteady feet. Let’s hold each other on this journey. Together we are stronger. Kickoff this year with clear aim, because there are a couple of “asses” that need proper kicking. Power up!
