Deeply Good was born out of a need for the genuine. Do you ever get that feeling at some points, with your friends, or with your family, that in that moment, you and everything you are doing is truly and deeply good?
A beach clean up in England. A naked swim in the lakes of Finland. A rave in a basement in Rome. A cry on your roommate’s shoulder.
We believe in the times when emotion is felt and accepted, so strongly that you can feel it’s warm hum within your chest. We want to channel that feeling into everyday life, into all the things we do, whether it’s talking to the barista who is making your coffee, or listening to an old album you haven’t heard in years. Deeply Good is about reclamation. We want to reclaim the connections we have to each other, and to the environments around us.
Guitar chords. Laughter. Birdsong. The taste of an apple. The touch of skin on skin. These things make us, and they break us. They shore us up. They knock us down. We need to remember that all these things are a part of the universe, and therefore, a part of us. We are intrinsically connected to everything.
Here at Deeply Good we want to create and to protect. We live in an age where art, cultures, and natural environments are usually the last thing on people’s minds. They are lost behind ideas of profit, or of patriotism.
Deeply Good is a magazine dedicated to the good and true things in life. We want to report on those people who are sharing the burden of improving this world. Our journalism is to be open-minded, progressive, accepting, and most of all, genuine. We will never sell out.
We want to protect. We want to support. We want to promote ideas that improve quality of life, ideas that work to bring people and planet together towards something more harmonious.
One thing that sets Deeply Good apart is that it believes in mutation. Our manifesto will change as new art, new technologies, and new languages enter this tumultuous fray we call contemporary life. Our current manifesto reads as thus:
MUTATION IS THE NATURAL ORDER OF THE UNIVERSE
THE EVENT IS INFINITE AND WORLD-DESTROYING, ALLOWING US TO COMPLETELY RECONCEPTUALISE REALITY
WHITE MEN DO NOT HAVE A MONOPOLY ON MELANCHOLY
HOLD NO QUARTER FOR THE PROGRESSION OF ART
DANCING SHOULD BE MANDATORY
MOVEMENT SHALL BE UNDERTAKEN IN EVERY FORM PHYSICAL AND MENTAL, BRINGING US FROM ONE STATE TO THE NEXT, BREAKING US AWAY FROM MULTIPLE CHRYSALIDES
POETRY SHALL NOT BE WRITTEN, IT SHALL BE GROWN
LIFE BECOMES RICHER WHEN WE TRANSCEND OUR BOUNDARIES, OR EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR EXISTENCE
THE ZENITH OF CREATIVITY IS A MULTIPLICITY WHERE DIMENSIONS COALESCE, AN ARTWORK IS A LYNCHPIN OF REALITY
HORIZONS CHANGE BUT A SUNRISE IS CONSTANT
TOMORROW IS THE PHYSICAL PLANE BY WHICH WE SET OUR TIMEPIECES
WE HAVE TO ACT WITHIN THE REALISATION THAT ONE DAY EVERYTHING GOOD COULD BE GONE FROM THE WORLD
When Deeply Good was first conceptualised in early 2018, it had no name. It was, more than anything, simply a feeling. There seemed to be a gap in the creative and public consciousnesses of people when it came to environmentalism. Where were the front page articles about the stories that very much mean life and death for people and wildlife around the globe? Since 2018’s IPCC report on Climate Breakdown was published, it was a general topic that was much more in the public sphere. Yet, articles, theories, facts, arguments were all met with an almost enforced apathy. We set about writing up all the things that would effectively cast a light on these stories that are either not published, hushed up, or derided.
We wanted to create a place where the creations of like-minded people could be showcased, whether they be an environmental report, a foray into political ecology, or a art project inspired by vegan activism. This would become the place for it.
We also need to stay true to the morals with which we embrace and act upon. And so:
