THE UNKNOWN PERSISTS

Let's Be Real

 

We're not here to bullshit.

The Unknown Persists is for those who are scared of every step but take it anyway. For the stuck and unstuck, for the comfortable in the uncomfortable.

We are a digital publication about the raw experiences of being human. We are about the people who are willing to risk, fail, laugh it off, make mistakes, and be curious. It’s fighting the stereotype of glamorous traveling and creativity and revealing it for the raw, real experiences behind the mask.

THE FEATURES

Storytelling
& More

 

We aim to tell stories that would otherwise be untold, we want to create things that are bigger than ourselves, we want to give a voice to traveling and creativity.

With open submissions for essays, photo, video, and everything in between - we're exhaling the fake shit and inhaling the good shit.

OUR FOUR MANTRAS

Take Risks & Make Mistakes

 
Unknown Rebrand-26.png

 

unconventional

Give up the idea that you have to travel a certain way or that you have to be the best to create the best. We've given up being perfect and the best a long time ago, join the dysfunctional, messy, beautiful club.


RAW

Exhale the fake shit, inhale the real shit. Get comfortable in taking risks and don't be afraid to share that discomfort with the world.


ELECTRIC

Make everything you see, you create, and you experience, be open-minded and blissful. Let that excitement run through your veins.

FREE

Let go and let in. We will be as cheesy as we want with this one - free yourself of worry, doubt, fear and exchange it for empathy, memories, and change.

 
In a world full of diminishing mystery,
the unknown persists.
