The Turban Times

is creating a web magazine about the Middle East & North Africa




per month


The Turban Times is an award-nominated web magazine focusing on compelling nuanced storytelling with an emphasis on the wider MENA region and its peoples – from Turkey to Yemen, Morocco to Afghanistan.

Launched in Copenhagen in 2016, our magazine aims to nuance, humanize, and provide a fresh and balanced alternative to the dominating war and conflict-focused coverage, by putting to light stories, perspectives, and ideas that do not usually reach the mainstream.

Main topics include youth, minorities, activism, culture, human rights, and more.

Ranging from media professionals and academics to citizen journalists, activists, and artists, our team consists of passionate storytellers from all backgrounds – each with their own focus and all with an objective of sharing untold stories and perspectives that they deem important to the wider public.
$0 of $400 per month
For 400$ a month, all our fixed expenses would be covered and that would be awesome! Right now, we're not only investing our time in The Turban Times, but we also have to work full-time on the side to pay the bills.

If our monthly expenses were covered by our readers, we would be able to focus more on the important stuff; telling stories from the broader Middle East and North Africa.
