Living Documents
One of the functions of art is to give people the words to know their own experience… Storytelling is a tool for knowing who we are and what we want.
— Ursula la Guin

Living Documents Publishing

Not for Profit Publishing and production house that creates text based and visual material for distribution and documentation. We pay for stories and images from individuals who have experience of the edges, on the periphery, and on the front line of our society. We view these individuals as reporters and observers who are creatively engaging in our society and whose voices are essential in hearing. We help to facilitate in gathering the observations and assist in the creation of material and distribution. This representation of thought and experience is meant to help our understanding of each other, to help us coexist in a complex world. Living Documents Publishing is in collaboration with The Listening Project and The Doorway.


We are looking to raise support to cover the cost of our next publications.
