Mishou Magazine, Issue 1. Highlighting work by artists ages 15 and under, collaborations between generations, and interactive sections, Mishou acknowledges the importance of early childhood education and aims to validate children’s identities as individuals and artists. Mishou Magazine is co-published by Dizzy Magazine and Children’s Museum of the Arts in NYC.
From the editor of Dizzy Mag, Milah Libin: “In Dizzy Magazine we have a 12 and Under section, which features a different young artist’s work in each issue. Expanding upon this piece of the Dizzy puzzle, Mishou is a new magazine focused even more on youth, and specifically collaborations between people of all ages. Since the pandemic started, we have had to find new ways to learn and play. With so much of our lives happening on the computer, a lot of us haven’t been able to see people in the way we used to.
Even though these changes have been challenging, humans have a great ability to adapt. It is clear that kids are among the most open and flexible with change. Grown-ups can learn a lot from kids!
Along with the pandemic dramatically changing how the world approaches education and play, there is also an incredible movement advocating for diverse voices that promote positive change and action against the systemic and historical oppression of BIPOC, trans-folx, and other marginalized and mistreated communities. The younger generation is leading by example, and must be supported, valued, and taken seriously.
As we make art publications, we feel it is critical to acknowledge the importance of early childhood education and validate children’s identities as individuals and artists. We hope to aid in visible diversity and inclusivity, socio-political awareness, and exposure to the art world in an accessible way for children.” Stock ID 120198. Link in bio!
