Happenstance 2019 Theme

Created by students and published by students, Happenstance is Nease’s own art and literature magazine. And it’s annual contest is starting again!

In the twenty-first century, social media has not only been integrated as a part of our daily life, but it has consumed us. If you didn’t post it on Instagram, did it really happen? While social media has harmoniously connected the world, the underlying obsession with certain numbers- views, likes, retweets, followers- has been to the detriment of our well-being. And the printing of news and magazines has consequently faltered in the age of the internet. This edition of Happenstance highlights and comments on the irony of it all- while art became more accessible through social media, literature itself has been cast aside.

Submission forms can be found in D-007. You can also ask your English teacher or art teacher for more information.
