Mahala Magazine is a new editorial project born in Sarajevo in February 2021. It is the result of a two-week workshop on photojournalism with photojournalist Enrico Dagnino. The event was organized by Kuma International Center for Visual Arts from Post-Conflict Societies, a non-profit organization founded by Italian art historian and curator Claudia Zini in Sarajevo in 2018.

A great team of very dedicated and highly skilled photojournalists from BiH, France, and the United States had the unique chance to work with Italian photojournalist Enrico Dagnino, one of the leading photographers for the French magazine “Paris Match.” For the first issue of Mahala Stories Magazine, they collected seven amazing stories about Sarajevo and documented their findings with great pictures taken with disposable analogue cameras.

Mahala Magazine’s first issue (February 2021) exists digitally as a free download on Kuma International's webpage and thanks to the amazing support of all the backers to this fundraising campaign it was available in print in some coffee places/bookstores/design shops in Sarajevo for you to read it.

Mahala Magazine’s first issue was received with great enthusiasm and therefore we continued implementing this editorial project and published the second issue in July 2021. The second issue also exists digitally as a free download.

The third issue of Mahala Magazine was released in December 2021. It is currently being distributed in the best coffee places and design stores around Sarajevo. For this third issue, we decided to expand its concept and to explore other mahalas arond the country. It is the beginning of a new adventure that in the next months will take our photographers and journalists around Bosnia and Herzegovina to let you discover other cities, realities and exciting stories. Mahala’s third issue is also available as a free download.

The end goal is to nurture a warm and welcoming publication filled with great stories about the people living in Bosnia and Herzegovina and beyond. The magazine will be a mirror of all of the values that Kuma International supports, such as interethnic dialogue, civil society engagement, and democratic participation, while at the same time promoting a positive image of Bosnia and Herzegovina, sharing important stories with the country, and advocating for policies that promote reconciliation and secure sustainable peace.

By donating to this project you will support all of the diversity that BiH is offering and you will help develop a valuable project that will surely be an inspiration for the younger generations.

Mahala Magazine believes that as the magazine's editor in chief Enrico Dagnino says, “we are living in an era of confusion and fake news in a digital universe. It is more important than ever to remain honest and impartial. The newly born Mahala Stories Magazine is our answer to the actual confusion. It is our commitment to portraying life as we see it without staging or manipulating anything, to know, understand and change the society in which we live for the better.”
