Rungh (1992-2000, 2017~)
The very first issue was launched at Desh Pardesh in Toronto,Ontario in the Summer of 1992.
Founded by Zool Suleman and Sherazad Jamal, the first iteration of Rungh was a pioneer in its cross/multi-disciplinary approach, which while rooted in identity politics, also looked beyond identity in its scope.
This predecessor published as a South Asian Quarterly of Culture, Comment and Criticism from 1992-1997 under one editorial team, and from 1997 to 2000 under a second editorial team. During that period, in addition to the magazine, Rungh also programmed events, engaged in advocacy to change Canada's art systems, and fostered a creative hub of activities.
