Support RD

For $2 (USD) a month, you can support Running Dog and our commitment to publishing innovative, daring and rigorous criticism and experimental arts writing.

Since launching in October 2017, we have produced 105 articles and worked with 50 contributors. Throughout this period, we have kept our founding principle of always paying writers for their work

Running Dog has published poetrycritical commentarysonic responsesa two-part closet dramathe lyrics of Britney Spears and an ongoing series of Letters from the Editor. We have considered filmpaintingburlesque and installation; we have reflected on exhibitions and events presented at institutionscommercial galleriesuniversity galleriesfestivals and artist-run-spaces. In 2019 we have partnered with Verge Gallery for a series of public programs, including Survival of the Critic and Writing With/About Desire. In May, we launched four poetry micro-residencies, and, in July, announced RD’s First Nations Emerging Critic program

Above all else, we endeavour to create a multi-vocal space for emerging and established writers who wish to challenge or disrupt the modes of contemporary arts writing. Our contributors include poets, critics, film scholars, musicians and fiction writers. 

Top four reasons to donate:

—Running Dog is currently the only publication producing weekly articles on contemporary art in New South Wales;
—Running Dog’s content will always be free to read, and we have an unwavering belief in the principles of open access;
—We are a non-commercial grassroots venture, which allows us to make independent editorial decisions. We wish to garner support from our  community rather than solely relying on government funding bodies or philanthropy, and we have no ties to sponsors or advertisers;
All donated funds will be used for writer’s fees and operation costs. They will not be used for salaries, event costs or promotional material.
