The Beat: A Cultural Mixtape is a collaboration between The Local Brand Co. Creative Director/Illustrator Greg Chinn, Outer Voice Editor Clay Steakley and various creatives from around the US. Weighed down by the isolation and anxiety of 2020, Greg and Clay sought a way to lighten their own burdens and those of others by sharing what inspires them. The Beat's topic concepts are loosely based on Beat poetry's unstructured format and immediacy of experience. The read is quick and links to organizations we want to amplify. The Beat is dedicated to sparking new ideas and bringing people together. A version of The Beat is also available on Outer Voice.
