Foyer Magazine Issue 1 (the Connect Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. For our first issue, we explore how to connect with our mixed cultural identities. We look in-depth at how we find and forge connections from all the different cultural backgrounds which come together to make us who we are. We joined entrepreneur Mae Yip, one of the brains behind ERIC career platform, to investigate how her mixed cultural heritage influenced her business.
Exploring personal memoirs from Third Culture Kids we examine feelings of homelessness and the creation of new or ‘fourth’ identities. Connections are revealed and celebrated through food and recipes, film and fairy tales, along with poetry and short stories, and powerful artwork and photo essays challenging preconceived ideas of mixed-cultural heritage. This Issue is filled with optimism and celebrates the uniqueness in us all.
Foyer magazine is an independent publication exploring stories from people of mixed and third culture backgrounds and second-generation heritage. Foyer is for everyone interested in understanding and sharing cultural experiences. Culturally curious, our readers enjoy exploring new cultures, and understanding the human experience. They comprise travellers, foodies, artists, photographers, academics and students, migrants, second generation and mixed heritage individuals and Third Culture Kids.
“Originating from a mixed-cultural heritage background, I was never able to find a publication which placed stories from mixed-cultural heritage voices front and center. With Foyer, I want to explore culture not from a country or ethnicity perspective, but from understanding how culture plays an important role in creating our identities, especially those from mixed backgrounds. Foyer’s mission is to explore, celebrate and uncover stories and experiences from people of mixed and third culture backgrounds and second-generation heritage. By bringing together diverse cultural voices, Foyer curates thoughtful and untold content, guiding readers to learn about culture in a different context and to understand what culture means to us as individuals.” — Fiona, Founder of Foyer
