CRED PHILLY seeks to amplify the voice and vision of young Philly. We encourage Philly’s young artists, designers, journalists, activists and entrepreneurs to contribute and curate published content as well as advertise their businesses and services. Each selected youth receives an honorarium as well as publication in each of our 10,000 copies.
CRED PHILLY FEATURES THREE PRIMARY SECTIONS
The Portfolio, Street Cred and The Market are featured in every issue. Additional sections featuring specialized content vary from issue to issue.
THE PORTFOLIO is a submission-based collection of visual art, performing art and creative writing that is created, documented and curated by youth.
STREET CRED is young Philly’s unique perspective on the people, places, businesses and events that nourish Philadelphia’s neighborhoods.
THE MARKET allows local businesses and services to show their support for youth arts in Philadelphia.
OUR EDITORIAL TEAM is comprised of a large network of young individuals and groups across the Philadelphia region and is managed by the staff and teaching artists at The Village of Arts and Humanities.
CRED PHILLY IS PRODUCED three times annually. Each issue is printed in a series of 10,000 copies. Based on an industry standard of three readers per copy, the magazine is expected to reach more than 30,000 Philly residents.
CRED PHILLY HAS RECEIVED ACCOLADES FROM teens and young adults from across the region as well as parents, educators, schools and colleges, professional artists, designers, journalists, arts organizations, youth groups, and locally owned businesses.
