An Accesible Journal of Leisure SPARE is a quarterly zine of essays, interviews, and artist projects about a vast range of topics focusing on both the production and enjoyment of contemporary leisure activities. Leisure means different things to different people — one person’s leisure activity may be another person’s hard day of work. But generally it is about freetime, relaxing, and pleasure. SPARE is interested in exploring recreation, leisure, sport, and good times.
SPARE is produced by Christopher Attenborough and Kristian Bjornard.
First Theme: Seeking
Seeking We spend a good amount of our leisure time seeking. Seeking involves the process of locating new places, objects, experiences, and ideas. It is about gaining new knowledge and new pleasure through discovery. The act of seeking out things or experiences becomes a hobby in itself.
In the producing of SPARE we seek content submissions — so, this topic seemed like the perfect place to start. We invite you to submit a piece for our first issue that is conceptually relevant to the idea of seeking.
