Big Issue Magazine: Do You See Me?

We are so thrilled to share the launch of the latest Big Issue, a historic edition which is the first to be entirely co-produced by people with learning disabilities!

Big Issue magazine cover, with 4 people on the cover looking at the camera directly. Text says "learning disabilities week special. Do you see me? By us, for everyone."

This special edition was made possible by Mencap and Big Issue teaming up together to create an edition about the disabled community and by the disabled community.

ARTXV artist Tara, a Mencap 'Mythbuster', took part in the production of the magazine, with her artwork featured.

page of the magazine, titled 'culture'. On the page is a large abstract painting with lots of colours and brisk strokes.

This year's theme is Do you see me? Do you see me, is about being seen, heard and valued - a positive message created by people with a learning disability to build a movement of change.
