Admin note: This website is the archive an art collective project that ran from 2014 – 2015. We are no longer taking submissions.

The Swan Children is an online art gallery and magazine founded to curate and showcase the creative work produced by artists who were influenced during formative years by religious fundamentalism. 


Art without apologies.

We are the Swan Children and we look after our own. We have inherited the kingdom and we’re singing for our lives – on street corners, in attics, in spare bedrooms, in the shower, at the family dinner table.

The Swan Children publishes drawings, paintings, photographs, music, poetry, stories, dance, and anything else that enchants us on a bimonthly schedule. We accept submissions on a rolling basis.

There are no rules here.

We want to show you something.
