Born in the diaspora, the digital magazine pays homage to the resilience of Iraqis worldwide who continue believing in and working towards a different Iraq that is inclusive of all sectors of society, in a matter that is equitable and reflective of the limitless talent that seeps through each and every linguistic, artistic and political manifestation of what being Iraqi means.

First launched in 2001, shakomako.net delivers original content created by both Iraqis and non-Iraqis from around the world. Throughout this time, shakomako.net has remained fiercely independent and will continue to do so.

If you are interested in contributing, collaborating or just saying hello, you can get in touch by email.

Socially, we are always available on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

With love, Riezan, Miriam, Shams, Deanne, Dunia, Dina and Ahmed
