Thank you for choosing to add a SOLIDARITY donation of £10, 100% of which will go towards our work with Palestinian artists and writers. You can also purchase a copy without a donation.

In this landmark 10th issue of Skin Deep’s print magazine, we explore the radical potential of play as a tool for reimagining, a tactic for resisting, and a necessary release that enables us to keep up the relentless work of building new worlds.

Edited by Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff and June Bellebono alongside the Skin Deep team, PLAY features contributions from: Otamere Guobadia, Lakeisha Goedluck, Ciaran Thapar, Risa Puno, Dominic Cadogan, Amuna Wagner, Amy Li Baksh, Simran Uppal, Kieran Yates, Zena Agha, Sonji Shah, Amahra Spence, Nkenna A Ibeakanma, Ruchira Sharma, Maysa P, Hadiru Mahdi, Jonas Fine Tan, Malaika Francique, Harshad Marathe, Wendy Wong, Julie Lai, Hwa Young Jung, Shweta Sharma, Sasha Kelley and Elliott Jerome Brown Jr.

The £10 donation with each SOLIDARITY purchase of our latest issue will be ringfenced for stories, workshops and other projects led by Palestinian artists and writers that centre Palestinian liberation in both the immediate and the long term. We encourage people to continue donating to Palestinian aid organisations – the scale of need in Gaza right now cannot be overstated – but we believe that alongside providing immediate aid, we must also be directing our efforts towards shifting the narrative (which is already happening; Israel is losing its footing in public opinion), increasing political education, strengthening movements through connecting people up, and providing vital spaces of community care. This is the kind of work that we believe Skin Deep can contribute to with the skills and resources we have. Thank you for your donation, and if you have questions, please email georgie at skindeepmag dot com.

Please note: to lighten the logistical load on our small part-time team, we will be posting your magazines in batches at the end of each month. Thanks for your patience!
