Welcome to ST.ART, an independent literary and arts magazine dedicated to promoting the work and incredible talent of St Andrews' community through a uniquely expressive medium. 

ST.ART has a continually expanding team of artists, writers and bloggers who contribute to generating content for print and online. A bi-annual publication, we release one theme-based print issue per semester. We also maintain a strong online presence, posting regular content to our website and social media outlets. 

Above all, at ST.ART we aim to provide an outlet through which students can express themselves creatively and artistically. As a collaborative organisation, we facilitate the exchange between artists and their audiences: we host regular pop-up exhibitions showcasing student's work, we post daily updates regarding current news and trends in the art world and we regularly collaborate with both local and student-run organisations here on campus. 

We hope to inspire a multiplicity of perspectives in our followers and to provoke the kind of thought and debate in our readers that befits the vibrant community in which we live.
