Live Magazine SA is a quarterly youth culture publication originally from London: which includes a glossy youth magazine and mobi channel featuring an inspirational mix of gritty youth culture and information, advice, career guidance and things to do for a youth audience.

The twist: everything in the magazine is produced by young people themselves, from the commissioning and editing, to the design, layout and distribution. Its mission: to give life-changing skills development and employability training for its participants, and to educate and inspire tens of thousands of young readers with an inspiring, engaging and entertaining mix of arts, culture, sports and fashion mixed with hard-hitting youth issues and crucial information and guidance for young people.

Seed funded by the Shuttleworth Foundation, Live Magazine gives opportunities to a core team of dedicated young people to take ownership of their own publication, and provide relevant and credible youth content for hundreds of thousands of young South African readers.
