Durham Beat is a local arts & culture publication practicing in the style of Gonzo Journalism. We are more than just a magazine. We are artists. We actively participate in our local creative community, collaborating with other local artists and businesses to create totally original and intrinsically unique zines, events, and artworks. Our goal is to help our local community to build and maintain the necessary infrastructure for a healthy and vibrant locally-based and -supported creative economy.
