Garland is a platform for sharing the stories behind what we make. It seeks to give voice to those to invest their time and energy in making beautiful objects that give meaning to our world. From these stories, bigger stories emerge that help frame what we do as important in the world today.
Garland is like Medium in offering a diversity of voices, but the stories must be based on individual experience. We don’t take advertising or accept blandly promotional articles. We want readers to trust Garland as a genuine platform.
We’re grateful to subscribers for helping cover our costs. Occasional grants help us with special issues. And we rely on one-off crowd-funding for major overhauls of our platform.
