The launch of Issue 4 - Into the Dark.
We recently celebrated our first ever live launch in Perth. Entering through a child-size door then scrambling into a forrest of larger than life flowers by Rose Skinner, guests were moved by a contemporary dance performance by choreographer Sam Fox and his daughter Makaela age 10 and a piano recital by musician Tara John playing a work composed by Pippa, age 11. The event was officially launched by Felicity Bott and featured artists Emma Fishwick, Dante Wakelam, and Ashleigh Whyte collaborating with kids to create dark paper houses, biro bears and accumulating artworks. We were so thrilled to have Stormie Mills and Max, age 13 join us on the night together with 2 of our other previous cover artists. The event also marked the launch of our new website AND and a new limited edition artist book called The Monsters Who Accidentally Stole the Sky (which will be available on our purchase page this week!).

We'd love to deeply thank our participating artists and guests and gratefully acknowledge the wonderful support of the Department of Culture and the Arts, Chrissie Parrott Arts, Beaufort St Books, Milk and Bookies and Vege Mama (best egg &dairy-free chocolate cakes in the world!). Huge thanks also to Cath, Deb and Rebecca for their support on the night. 
We are also happy to announce that our launch  saw 100 BIG magazines donated to Radio Lollipop for the kids in Princess Margaret Hospital.
