welcome to FLASH THRIVE. we’re a creative community for people who have always wanted to make things but needed a place to make them.

we launched in 2016 as a way to get all of our friends’ amazing creative work in one place. what began as a one-time zine has turned into over a dozen independently published titles, a monthly playlist newsletter, live events, and a growing platform to elevate the work of artists we love and believe in.

we are an online and IRL community that encourages do-it-yourself creative projects. we prioritize the voices of women of color, first-generation americans, and the LGBTQ+ community.

this is your platform—use it to make the art you’ve always wanted to see.
