Hand Mirror is a creative community launched in 2019 by musician Katie Harkin and writer Kate Leah Hewett. Hand Mirror is a home for the boundless, the collaborative and the open, from live shows to the written word, from performance to recorded music, and beyond.

For both of us, music and culture provided a kind of scaffolding for our emerging identities as young people, and continue to do so as we move forwards in our lives. Starting Hand Mirror was a statement of intent; if we can build the scaffolding to support ourselves, then we can offer that structure to others.

Through Patreon, we hope to be able to continue to develop our scaffolding, and to connect to those interested in being part of what we're building, even as the parameters for performing, writing and creating new culture continue to shift. We hope to turn Hand Mirror into a space for self reflection which can support the work of others.

By supporting us with a monthly subscription of your choice, you'll be working with us to help make that possible. In return, you'll have access to writing, music, performance and collaborations exclusive to patrons. If you support us at the Full Length level, you'll also get a subscription to our bi-annual print journal and will get both this, and a merch package through your mailbox.

Thanks for reflecting with us.
