ARID Journal is organized into four distinct editorial sections:


A place to publish hypotheses, experiments and results for those attempting to redefine an education in art, media and design along environmental and social practice lines. We are particularly interested in field-based pedagogy with an emphasis on desert geographies.


Practices, projects, and ideas referencing art, design, media and other works related to ARID’s mission.


A place for discussion of the frameworks, rules, regulations and other structures that govern and legislate place, a vehicle to converse with our co-inhabitants, and a means to link to other desert communities.


An ongoing archive of dialogues, fictions and freeform ideas concerning desert geographies from an array stakeholders, viewpoints and positions. This section includes book and exhibit reviews.
