Some Kind of Opening is part journal, part sharing circle, part interdisciplinary experiment. It is a way for candidates/alumni across multiple SoAs to read, watch, and appreciate each other’s work. Some Kind of Opening was created to combat concentration isolation, and encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and viewership. It is our first step. If you’re interested, please consider submitting your work, and/or joining our advisory board.The advisory board helps us grow by sharing their ideas, inviting individuals to publish their work, and advocating for causes like: university/classroom flex space, equipment rentals for all SoA concentrations, a decentralized platform for sharing events, cross university collaboration, etc. Please reach out to us with any questions you may have, or follow our Instagram to stay up to date on SKOO on new issues.

Any and all support is greatly appreciated, and helps keep the figurative lights on at SKOO. If you're able, please donate here.
