Today the hymn of the world is the radial whine of cars passing on the freeway. A headlong momentum pervades our social consciousness, blurring the appreciation of detail, effacing the desire to ruminate. There are no sidewalks on the highway.

Publio is a magazine that stops you in your tracks.

Culture used to be local. Today, it is in transformation. The definition of culture and identity has become elusive—today it is informed by an improbable cacophony of voices. Publio celebrates this rich bedlam.

Free of any specific political agenda or ideological bent, Publio addresses culture and identity in all facets of art, the marketplace, and belief systems. Publio’s mission is to plumb the creative wealth that springs from cultural identity in transformation. With precocious attitude and studied grace, Publio’s pages aim to provide a break from the rat race.
