BIG Kids Magazine

Oh BIG Kids Magazine is my new favorite. This contemporary arts publication for children has a senior editor who is eight years old. A child-led editorial team, can’t be better :)

“He uses his words to protect himself from the falling icebergs”. Luca, age 8.

The practicing and passionated artists behind the magazine is Jo Pollitt and Lilly Blue.

BIG is committed to partnering with organisations that support and enrich the lives of children and working towards donating one magazine for every subscription sold, so that BIG is accessible children everywhere. ”Driven by discovery, experimentation and response, we invite children to participate in topical conversations about art and the world.” Tell your kids to submit their work here.

    such a brilliant concept to encourage kids the importance of art in their lives. it would be great to have some of the kiddies art as prints you could purchase. they are so clever and wonderful
    it would be a pleasure to frame them for our children’s walls.
