Newcastle Mirage is a monthly Art & Culture Zine printed and distributed across the Greater Newcastle area. Hundreds of local cafes, bars and retail locations stock our magazine and can be collected for FREE while stocks last. Mirage is a limited print production to ensure Novocastrians get out and enjoy the beautiful city and because we hate waste! Mirage bore out of a need in the community for a print media that informs Newcastle about the rich and exciting society that we have here. An invention from two like-minded creatives; Ryan Williams and Kian West, who have enlisted some of Newcastle’s greatest artists, journalists and innovative groups to help us keep each other informed.
Our passion is fueled by two basic ideas: Promote Newcastle and Novocastrians, and be positive about everything we include. Every month the Newcastle Mirage aims to inspire people to want more from our great city, to speak positively about the locals, and to help out where possible. We know that together there is more that we can achieve, and when we think about it, Newcastle really is an amazing place to live. Here at Newcastle Mirage we are driven to supply exciting news from the city about local Arts and Culture, as it is produced by a great bunch of Novocastrians who are genuinely excited by local events, fantastic people and incredible shops.
Kian West (Left) and Ryan Williams (Right) are genuinely passionate about Newcastle and hope to inspire those around them to assist one another, to Shop Local, as well as talking about the Wins from those in our community rather than some touring act or international brand. Newcastle Mirage is a glimmering Oasis of hope and inspiration, but we are super limited so if you don’t get hold of one each month then we truly become a ‘Mirage’.
Pictured here, is Kian and Ryan after speaking at Idea Bombing Newcastle (read our notes from the event here) we love talking about how much we love this beautiful city and some of the fantastic work that is coming out of it like White Magazine and Cool People Doing Cool things!
While we love giving away Mirage for FREE to inspire the community we do also offer a subscription option so you can secure a copy every issue and it also helps us to continue doing what we love in the hopes others do too. Think of it like your own personal pat-on-the-back… Check it out here.
