About

Graphite is a Montreal-based publication and global community of thinkers and artists. Through our articles, special issues, and community gatherings, we have worked to provide a digital platform for the voices of the younger generation since 2013. Our mission is twofold: to promote local culture and innovation while presenting perspectives that cut across both geography and discipline. Actively benefiting from our city’s cosmopolitan demography, we have roots and networks stretching across the world.

 

Our existence is a complex and nuanced one, and truth often lies at the intersection of numerous interconnected viewpoints and forms of expression. Having come of age in a globalized digital era, our generation has been exposed to a volume of information and discourse unprecedented in human history. We believe the dialectical power of discourse and critique to be a necessary solution. By participating in this dynamic cycle, Graphite aims to provide a meeting point for inspired creation and intellectual exploration.

 

We reject no opinion or creative form as long as it is thoughtful and original. All interested are encouraged to pitch us their ideas at graphitepublications@gmail.com. Join us as we connect the dots and make sense of the madness.

 

Statement of Values

Graphite will aim to:

○ promote intellectual diversity and free debate. No submission is rejected on the basis of its tone, ideology, or perspective, but we will not publish hate speech, bigotry, or articles encouraging violence.

 

○ be non-partisan but not necessarily neutral. Editorials will be published on an occasional basis, based on the consensus of our editorial board. These editorial stances will not bias our relationships with our contributors.

 

○ keep all of our activities, including events, as accessible and inclusive as possible. In accordance with our status as a non-profit organization, we will always prioritize community over profit.

 

The publication of an article on our platform does not imply our endorsement of the views expressed therein. The opinions of our writers are their own.
