Founded in 2020, Three Fold is an independent quarterly publication based in Detroit that is free and for the community. Our journal presents perspectives on arts, culture and society, in addition to original works in various media, including visual art, literature, film and music. Existing in between the spryness of the news and more imaginative, exploratory points of view, Three Fold responds to the community need for dialogue and support. We solicit and commission contributions from artists, activists and writers in the city, across the country, and overseas, seeking content that is germane to the interests of Detroiters. Three Fold is a publication of the decade-old artist-run space Trinosophes, currently seeking 501(c)3 status.
