|January 2012 Issue|
The Village of the Arts and Humanities is a local gem with a national reputation and it has been providing opportunities for young people to explore their concerns and interests through art and culture. Hot off the press is its gorgeous publication CRED Magazine; Amplifying the Voice and Vision of Young Philly.
CRED is defined by the Village as “an arts and culture magazine that supports Philly’s young artists, designers, journalists, activists and entrepreneurs by providing them with opportunities to contribute and curate published content as well as advertise their business and services.”
My 13 year-old son has a wonderful self-portrait he painted which is included in this new issue. The magazine is free and you can pick it up all around town. Ten thousand copies have been printed. Here is a link to a sample of the magazine: http://issuu.com/credmagazine/docs/cred-magzine-issue1
