WE ARE STORYTELLERS

A collaborative project/online magazine highlighting Asian-American creatives.

OUR STORY

Started in November 2020 by Ken Pena + Aitana Mallari, TARO Magazine is an ambitious collaborative project highlighting Asian-American creatives. We’re cultivating a community of creatives and curating content that uplifts them.

Inspired by our friends and faced with a lack of representation in Arizona, we established TARO Magazine to encourage and celebrate their growth. Providing a platform, resources and community, it's what we wished we had when we first started our creative journey, and is a testament to what we know now: There's room for all of us.

Interested and want to learn more? Contact hello@taromagazine.com

We're always looking to cover more creatives—the ones under the radar, the underdogs, the up-and-coming. Know one? Nominate them below. (Psst...they don't have to be from AZ!)
