About the project:

The genre of self-help is seen as an isolated activity of self-betterment, often mocked for its tropes, cheesiness, and scam-adjacency. As lovers of pulp and pop, we see beyond the public ridicule to the heart of self-help: as a way that humans seek and communicate care to one another. From the paperbacks lining airport bookstores to call-in radio shows to advice columns, people are trying to find out from other people how to navigate new territory. In a confusing and destabilized world, the care, knowledge and wisdom we can offer one another is crucial. We sought to collectively make a record of our mistakes, lessons learned, instructions for living, warnings, and inner old-man-shouting-from-rooftops.

Unlike conventional self-help material, HELP YOURSELF is not intended to present anything like singular truth or unified advice. Our publication contains a poly-vocal collection of creative work responding to the theme of self-help from artists from around the world.
