about.

how it began.

rrramble came to be in the summer of 2020, when three artsy pals realised they were done with reading Arts & Culture content specifically created by (and for) a homogenous group of rich white people from London. Over a pint on a bench outside a circus tent, Abbie, Ellie & Georgia (our rrramble founders) dreamed of a platform where a multitude of voices, opinions and experiences were represented on a variety of artforms & topics, where each opinion was contextualised amongst multiple others, allowing the reader to come to their own conclusions. 

 

“Shall we just… make it ourselves?”

“Yeah, go on then.”

 

Since then, rrramble has continued to grow and shift into the platform we know it as today. Within the first couple of months, we brought on our first team of writers. Then more. Then illustrators. Then administrators. Then editors. At the time of writing this, in the summer of 2022, we have 6 core team members (including our founders), 4 editors, 4 illustrators, and a whopping 25 rrramble writers. 

 

We created & continue to run this platform because we love it, and because we believe in diversifying the critical and creative voices in the Arts & Culture sector. We aren’t funded, and everyone involved with rrramble - including our core team - are volunteers, and juggle rrramble alongside other jobs (typically in the arts). 

 

We’re so grateful for all the support so far, and the future of rrramble looks pretty exciting. Trust us: you’re not gonna want to miss it.

mission statement.

rrramble is a unique platform for creatives of all kinds, designed to diversify the creative and critical voices we find in the Arts & Culture sector. At rrramble, we believe that diversity of opinion is what makes life interesting, and that this should be celebrated. It’s time that we reject the notion that the opinion of a single person has the power to condemn or immortalise a piece of art, or to be the ultimate truth. That’s where rrramble comes in.

Every review by rrramble includes multiple perspectives, opinions and verdicts. You’ll never see a review here by just one writer: by providing a multitude of views, we hope to empower you to make your own mind up about the pieces of art we feature – whether you agree with our writers, or not. As well as reviews, we share longer form think-pieces – rrrambles – about current affairs and topics within the Arts & Culture sector; and rrreverbs, artistic responses to a monthly prompt.

 

We think it’s important that our rrreviews, rrrambles and rrreverbs don’t just come from a faceless figure behind a keyboard; Art is all about people, and that’s important to remember. To help you figure out who you might agree (or disagree) with, and to get a sense of the experiences that may have shaped their opinions and artistry, you can find a bio about each writer on our ‘meet the team’ page. 

We’re also aware that the term ‘Art’ (with a capital A) is in itself a little daunting. We want rrramble to be a place for any kind of art that we feel is interesting; from mix tapes, to theatre productions, to Netflix shows, to a poetry night held in a living room – nothing is too big or too small to be considered worth reviewing.

 

The core team at rrramble started this blog purely because we believe in diversifying the critical and creative voices in the arts sector – we aren’t funded, and juggle rrramble alongside our jobs in the arts. No matter what we say, we’ll be honest, every time. And if you disagree? Hey, that’s just part of the fun.
