Virtual Magazines

During the summer of COVID, two lonely teens, Leeya and Adalia began exchanging Bored Boxes. These activity boxes included fun things and themes, which they traded weekly. Before long, the project evolved and spread to other members of their neighborhood, in the form of a community magazine. Between August 2020 and August 2022, Adalia and Leeya wrote, printed and sent out 17 issues, including over 300 printed magazine copies.

With topics ranging from the history of our neighborhood to the food cycle to how US history is taught in other countries, these editions have taught us lessons about the world, while broadening out connections with our local community.
