Ikamva Live Launches

 

Dazed and Confused and Live magazine in the UK have partnered up to create Ikamva Live, a mini-magazine that features the experiences of young people in South African townships. According to Dazed Digital:

Ikamva Live, the one-off mini-magazine we’re distributing today, is the first small step in a long-term plan to export the success of the youth-owned media empire, Live Magazine, from the streets of Brixton – where it all began – to the townships of South Africa.  Funded through a Fellowship from the Shuttleworth Foundation, I moved to Cape Town in May this year to develop and launch Live Magazine in a place where inequality is still striking, the education system limps along, and the opportunities for young people to create and thrive are still severely limited by poverty.

It must have been a hit since all of the copies have been snapped up. Check out the whole article here.
