It's not "news" — it's what's leading and what's coming.

The Kigalian is an independent-minded source of provocative ideas, stories, and profiles fit for the twenty-first century.

Every month, we publish content from writers and storytellers who look to the future.

We are a magazine that covers the intersection of education and media, policy and science, and culture and entertainment in order to feed the curiosity of "new audiences."

Since launching in early 2015, our stories have put accent on people, social media, politics, and innovation — all presented in the forms of blogs, commentary and opinion articles, as well as short-form creative nonfiction.

As of June 2021, the site attracts up to ten thousand readers every week.

Soon you'll be able to get more details via  the Brand page.
