It has already been two years that The Arts Factory Magazine (TAFMAG) writes about emerging artists online. It is now time to go print!


The project

The Arts Factory Magazine was created Down Under to better develop on this side of Earth, in France, where a young generation of artists is blossoming.


It has already been two years that The Arts Factory Magazine discovers and interviews emerging artists in music, photography, cinema, theatre, fashion, literature and contemporary art.


TAFMAG has also being organising events such as concerts, fashion markets, festivals, contemporary art fairs in order to present the artists that the magazine has brought light on. Here is a video of the festival we organised last summer, it will give you an idea of the up-coming one: Save The Date, it will happen on September 13th, the very day before the official release of the print magazine. You could be the first ones to actually have a feel to it!



Last but not least, TAFMAG has recently created its very first ephemeral collection of t-shirts and sweat-shirts in collaboration with a photographer and two illustrators. The second collection will be released during the September festival.




And today, we are preparing the print version of the magazine. At a time when people give more time to read, TAFMAG gives its time to unearth the best of our generation. It will be a bi-annual magazine, bilingual (French & English); a 100 page issue with interviews, portraits of emerging artists, news stories, photo reportages, unpublished photos series, fashion collaborations.. A captivating content, an aesthetic design for a unique and modern magazine. 






From left to right:


After specialising in web and print journalism, Julie Maury started working in art and culture sections. Passionated about art and cinema, she brought her expertise to TAFMAG over a year ago. Sometimes at night, she secretly likes to drink Gazpacho while doing crosswords. Don't tell.


Pauline Guillonneau is the creator and editor in chief of TAFMAG. After studying political sciences and journalism somewhere between Paris, London and Sydney, she decided to settle in Paris where there are so many emerging artists to discover. She created TAFMAG in order to show the best of her generation.


Aurore Lucas is the artistic director of TAFMAG. She studied photography and graphic design between Paris and Vancouver where she discovered a much funnier way to look at things. An ability that she brought back to Paris and to the magazine through her nineties way to live pretty much all of her life.


Marie Durantet is in charge of communications at TAFMAG. After spending three years at one of the biggest art galleries in Paris, she just decided to join the team. A new experience that we will have the great pleasure of discovering very soon. First mission : our print version. No kiddin'.




Why fund it?

But it is no secret: all of this is quite expensive! We are calling on your desire for quality, on your thirst for learning, on your appeal for beautiful objets, on your will to show that all of this is doable.


Help us print 2000 copies of TAFMAG's very first issue! We can assure you: A moment in History.


* The pre-impression work costs 500€ 

* The impression itself for 2000 copies, with all the quality options we desire costs 8,000€

* The English translations cost 300€

* The delivery of your gifts costs 200€




* The organisation of the festival on September 13th with concerts, exhibits (photos and illustrations), and our pop-up store with TAFMAG's second collection costs 1,000€. Because we'd like to print all the posters we need and create a great mood with superb installation for the exhibition space.


Yep, that's already 10,000€...






Thank you so much for helping us out. Hopefully this will all be possible with you guys :)


The Arts Factory Magazine - or TAFMAG - is a young online magazine that speaks of emerging artists in music, photography, fashion, contemporary art, cinema, theatre and literature. We want to show what is going on at its best in our generation of artists, in France and internationally.
