“In an era of budget cuts, CRED magazine offers a creative outlet for the city’s youth.”

“With the Philadelphia School District’s financial crisis putting arts on the chopping block across the city, creative opportunities for local youth seem to be drying up faster than a splash on the summertime sidewalk.

In the midst of that fraught atmosphere, Village of Arts and Humanities Executive Director Aviva Kapust is touting a project that overcomes both funding shortfalls and the ephemeral nature of the digital world: a professional-grade magazine created, curated and designed entirely by people under 25.

“What all of us are most proud of is that, we believe, we really are the only magazine model that operates like this in the world,” says Kapust of CRED Magazine, now celebrating its third year and fifth issue going to press.”
