he Origins Issue: The first chapter in a year-long journey.
This year, Huck is going in search of a manifesto for indie culture. For the past decade we’ve met creative doers, both iconic and unknown, at the forefront of DIY culture who’ve shared invaluable lessons they’ve learned along the way. Now, as we near our fiftieth issue, we’re ready to dig even deeper into the engine of creativity that these people helped ignite. We want to ask bigger questions — about how they made their mark, and where indie culture is heading — so that readers can walk away inspired to strike out on their own.
Our journey kicks off with The Origins Issue, a celebration of new beginnings, former lives and authentic roots.
