Quirky, thought-provoking and entirely unfiltered, Neverland is unique, to say the least. Here at Denizen, we’re forever on the hunt for out-of-the-box celebrations of creativity, content that inspires us to think differently and see the world through another lens, and this homemade magazine has barrelled onto our cultural radar for that reason exactly. Now in its seventh issue, Neverland zine is finally making its way to New Zealand after spending its short tenure of life over in Bali, and we suspect its going to make some serious waves this side of the Tasman.
In what can only be described as founder Oliver Green’s whacky yet intelligent stream of consciousness in paper format, Neverland comprises artwork, poetry, sketches and long-form articles. The pieces featured are often confronting, but never for a second are they boring or lacklustre, and we can guarantee that you’ll come away from it feeling as though you’ve experienced something… even if you can’t quite put your finger on what exactly that is.
In celebration of Neverland’s New Zealand launch, Green has produced an accompanying collection of t-shirts, in two distinctive designs, and a range of bespoke dog tags, available to purchase from Knowear in Ponsonby. The magazine, however, is free, and if that’s not enough reason to dip your toes into something new and exciting, then we don’t know what is — trust us, you won’t be disappointed.
NB: Do you want to know what else is free? A sticker pack and your name in the draw to win a Neverland t-shirt — all you have to do is follow @neverlandzine on Instagram. Easy.
