Tis the time for Giving!
There are a lot of busy bunnies writing and working and calculating expenses in order to get this magazine off and running (as well as #ReadAsianOz!) So to help us along, we have enlisted the help of the Australian Cultural Fund (who do amazing and beautiful work for many, many other organisations and projects).
Our very lovely campaign is here: https://australianculturalfund.org.au/projects/issue-1-readasianoz/, and will most importantly, let us pay all of our brilliant contributors a decent fee, but will also help us with printing and distribution costs. Any leftover money will be put in a kitty, or will go towards more stickers and/or books for #ReadAsianOz. Speaking of #ReadAsianOz, we’re looking at a Chinese New Year launch date (28 January 2017), so keep your eyes peeled! We’re excited, and we hope you are too!
So if you’re an Asian Australian artist, get creating – submissions close on the 5th of January, 2017. If you’re not Asian Australian but you’d like to help us be the very best that we can, or if you want to be able to support your Asian Australian artist friends, consider a (tax deductible!) donation to our campaign. It will be running until the end of February, so you have plenty of time dig out some pennies!
