Tellus Zine is youth-led digital publication, showcasing visual art and creative writing by young adults from across Greater Cincinnati. Tellus’s mission is to provide a platform for young people to express themselves bravely and creatively as a part of our diverse community. The zine was developed as an off-shoot of Kennedy Heights Arts Center’s Teen Artists for Change program. Tellus is a Latin word meaning “Earth” and also can be broken down into the invitation: “Tell us!” The students selected the name for their publication because of this double meaning.
