Rungh is launching its current issue (January 2018) at Centre A. Come join us for readings, music, performances, archive magazine store, and more.

Launched in Vancouver and Toronto in 1992, Rungh was a "South Asian Quarterly of Culture, Comment and Criticism". After publishing as a print journal and acting as a cultural producer on the regional and national arts scene, Rungh ceased to publish in 1999. An archive site contained Rungh's partial archive from 2005-2017.

Rungh has now relauched as a web project. Rungh's new tag line is "Rungh.Means.Colour". Join us to celebrate this 25 year history!

Many thanks to Centre A for hosting and partnering with Rungh for this event.
