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’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.
