Who We Are

Mackerel is a culture magazine.

We tell contemporary stories of beauty, truth and hope, giving a deep-dive perspective on places, spaces and people.

Like the “maquerel" in Old French - a “go-between” - Mackerel is a broker of experience.

Mackerel was founded by Marc Nair (poet, producer and photographer) and Carolyn Oei (writer/producer/community builder).

  •  BRAISED – Everything food and drink
