Dazed & Confused editor Rod Stanley will be relocating to South Africa for a month to support the launch of Live Magazine South Africa, the new project from Live Magazine. Working as their editorial mentor, Stanley will be helping a team of 21 young people largely recruited from the townships outside Cape Town to work on the launch phase of a youth magazine that aims to empower and inspire young South African people of all backgrounds.
Based in Lambeth, south London, the original Live Magazine is a free publication “created by young people for young people”, launched by award-winning youth engagement agency Livity, and which has been media-partnered by Dazed & Confused since its beginnings ten years ago. Live South Africa’s will be aiming to take the Live Magazine model to the next level, printing 50,000 copies and aiming to become the united voice of youth for South Africa.
“Live magazine is a great project that all of us at the magazine have been proud to support since it started. I hope we can now help that original idea succeed in a different part of the world with different challenges.” Rod Stanley, Dazed & Confused editor
