moyÉ Magazine is...
A Holding space - a place to be indignant, messy and vulnerable.
Moyé is a non-profit media platform based in Johannesburg, South Africa started by the youth to amplify the creative potential of the youth.
We are present as you -young creatives- explore the extent and power of your ability to create, observe and feel. We do this by showcasing: art, features, photography, writing, anything and everything creative.
Often young creatives - especially in marginalised groups - are not given the grace to be indignant, messy and vulnerable. We want to be a space that allows young creatives to creatively grow alongside their emotions - outside societies expectations.
As Sunny Bridges puts it, "To tear down the walls on convention with the wrecking ball of creativity."
Resources are scarce for young creators, especially in Africa. Our mission is to raise awareness of the magnificent art world waiting to be explored. We want to erase the stigma that a creative job isn't a plausible future.
We aim to reignite the stifled spirits of marginalized young creatives, who have been discouraged from taking the creators path. We want to give voice to those who have been pushed aside, along with proving the resources to do so.

Hey :) im vanilla (she/they). im a writer, i write poetry and help out with the poetry sections of the magazine.
currently i don’t major in anything so far, as i’m awaiting acceptance (basically i’m completely lost and unsure of what i’m doing with my life). i love to dance on my own, scream to mitski on high volume and spend days i need comfort watching studio ghibli films.
