Become a member. 100% of membership funds go directly to writers and artists published in the archipelago, and to training refugee communities.

Your support enables us to expand our work training refugee and migrant background writers and artists, and increase our payments to the creatives we publish and collaborate with.

Every contribution, however big or small, is so valuable for our future and protects our independence. 

We are a newly formed group that relies entirely on memberships to sustain our work. 100% of membership funds go directly to the refugee communities we train, and to publication fees for writers and artists in our magazine. We are registered as a non-profit company in Australia: Create Archipelago Ltd and run by an unpaid volunteer team.

All prices are in Australian dollars. (For reference, 10 AUD = 110,000 IDN). For recurring payments, you can cancel your subscription at any time.
