    Arena is well known in Melbourne and Australia more broadly as a publication which has made an impact on political and cultural interpretation and practice over a period of more than thirty years. However, Arena is more than this or that publication. It is composed of a core of people with a large number of friends and supporters who have established various venues and discussion projects in Melbourne and its environs as well as engaging in a variety of practical endeavours over this period.

    The core value of co-operation stands at the centre of what motivates and structures the practices and discussions of people at Arena. It is a value which has had superficial meanings for many groups, but be that as it may, it needs to be re-thought in fundamental ways given the collapse of older notions of socialist co-operation. This project enlivens all the discussions held in Arena settings and shapes the activities and publications of Arena editors.

    Over the last three decades people associated with Arena have established research and conference facilities in both the country and the city, and in the latter there is a thriving centre which combines publication, public discussion and a commercial printery.

    Arena has never accepted government support of any kind and has been fortunate to have been valued sufficiently by its friends for them to help its development financially in a variety of ways.

    At the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April, athletes from countries that were once a part of the British Empire will battle for gold—but is the Commonwealth of Nations more than a legacy of another age?

    At a time of geopolitical uncertainty, the Commonwealth is poised to play a major role as a values-based network that represents a third of the world’s population. Whether this group can exercise real power and influence will be determined in 2018. The old empires are long gone, but in the wake of Brexit and the rise of China and India, the shape of a new world order remains unclear.

    Commonwealth Now features writers from around the world who explore the contemporary experience of Commonwealth citizens: reconciling the past, confronting new challenges, and opening new exchanges to create a sustainable and equitable future.

    ISSUE 3

    Featuring Abdul Abdullah, Ben McGee, Helen Razer, Ishmael Butler, James Hartley, Julian Klincewicz, Maryam Namazie, Moonasi, Phoebe Collings-James, Raquel Nave, Sanam Sindhi, Saul Williams, Senator Scott Ludlam, Siri Hustvedt, Stanislava Pinchuk (Miso).

    Independent, ambitious, gracefully impolite, KRASS is a bi-annual art and culture journal dedicated to alternative voices and ideas.

    KRASS was founded by an Adelaide duo, and begun as an alternative to the overwhelming proliferation of fashion magazines targeting a female audience. The focus is turned on art, culture, and diverse modes of thought. The first issue features a curated collection of national and international figures - from human rights lawyers, political leaders and activists to avant-garde film makers, photographers and artists.

    KRASS is a room in which a human rights lawyer sits comfortably next to a Catalan bank robber - it is an ode to the defiant and the curious.
