BIG kids magazine
We'd like to share with you a new publication that is about to launch called BIG Kids Magazine. BIG stands for Bravery, Imagination and Generosity. (Just to avoid confusion - this is not being launched by us at Barefoot!)
BIG Kids Magazine is a contemporary arts publication for children. Driven by discovery, experimentation and response, we invite children to participate in topical conversations about art and the world. With a senior editor who is eight years old, BIG challenges hierarchies of who is listening and who is speaking to amplify small voices in BIG ways.
BIG is committed to partnering with organisations that support and enrich the lives of children and we will be working towards donating one magazine for every subscription sold, so that BIG is truly accessible to all children everywhere.
The magazine is a 60-page ethically produced biannual print publication that inspires creativity. It can be posted to anywhere in the world flying art from gallery walls and onto playroom floors. Every issue features a FREE artist print and two key projects: SIDE BY SIDE publishes artwork by children and artists side by side as our primary content and The Child Artist Response Project (CARP) is an initiative where children and artists respond directly to each other’s work.
You can keep up to date with developments, launch dates and stockists by signing up for the Monthly Newsletter, becoming a follower of the blog or by liking the BIG Kids Magazine facebook page.
