Following the success of our first magCulture Live Online event, we’re now offering the chance to view a video of the 2.5 hour webinar.

During the event, which too place on Friday 29 May, five speakers addressed how magazines and magazine makers have responded to the coronavirus pandemic. The video covers the whole event and is available through Vimeo on Demand. We’re charging $6 – all income will be donated to health charities in London and New York.

Host: Jeremy Leslie

The editor of The Big Issue, Paul McNamee, also contributes a video about how his magazine has had to rewrite its business model due to the pandemic.

Please note this is an unedited video of a live event, an experiment that tested our internet bandwidth with some of the video material shared. But the speakers all deliver insight into their work so we’re delighted to expand its reach and in the process raise a bit more money for charity.
