As we emerge from lockdown stasis and join hands again, the summer issue of Dazed celebrates the power of the collective spirit to change everything. A new globe, a new Dazed: Steered by newly instated editor-in-chief Ibrahim Kamara and executive editorial director Lynette Nylander, the issue marks a fresh era for the magazine, putting a local lens on vital new voices from around the planet. On the first of our covers, we go behind the headlines with England football star and political firebrand Marcus Rashford, who pens a heartfelt ode to the power of community action. Also fronting the issue: a series of snapshots from a planet in the throes of generational change, from the End Sars activists ushering in a new era in Nigerian protest to the biggest vaccine drive in history.
