Purchase a copy of the quarterly essay in a uniquely hand-decorated cover. These covers were created by refugee artists who are part of Melbourne Artists for Asylum Seekers. Each cover has a unique number, which you can use to leave a comment for the artist. 40% of proceeds go back to the artist (the remainder go to writers’ fees and production costs). Many of the participants had careers as artists in their home country, before being forced to leave. They no face the challenge of finding a way to contribute skills to their new country. Unfortunately, some of the participants are still languishing in detention centres.
This cover is the first step in a new life. You can find out more about the artist here.
