Episode 162: Building Community Through Your Magazine

A magazine’s community is much more than its “subscribers” and “advertisers.” At BASHY, a quarterly digital and print publication focused on art, style, culture and cultural commentary of and on Jamaica, community is always top of mind.

In this episode of AudioMag, Sharine Taylor, the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of BASHY Magazine, talks with Kiley Pole, Magazines Canada’s Manager of Member Services and Benefits, about the importance of community in our everyday lives and when creating a magazine. They discuss how the Jamaican diaspora reaches across the globe and how BASHY helps to create community across borders.

Sharine tells us about how the BASHY community goes beyond the pages of her magazine and why it’s vital that magazines continue to create these spaces for different voices and experiences.
