Print – AR – Web – Community
Crush Connoisseur implements art, writings, research, and user-generated content to open the discussion around crushes. By curating, hosting, and contributing to a community-authored project centering around a topic that often is often infantilized and gendered, Crush Connoisseur aims to highlight unique narrative and artistic voices, the power of nostalgia, and transmedia storytelling.
