The theme of Orlando Issue 0 is 'proto' - signifying beginnings, fresh ideas and current inspirations. This particular issue introduces the voice of a younger generation, in flux, establishing grass-roots projects and questioning complicity with the bureaucratic mainstream. There is a potent sense of community. The polyphony of their voices is united by a like-minded attitude towards a notion of the collective, progressive social values, and a belief that sharing resources and ideas is key for innovative production. This polyphonic voice is inter-disciplinary - mingling art and design, film, literature, politics, and social history. The topics explored are inquisitive in nature, casting refreshing new light on potentially old attitudes and ideas, and forging a path towards a more liberated cultural embodiment.
