Exposure magazine


The 28-page Exposure Magazine is produced six times annually. Exposure magazine is designed to educate and inform young people, as well as to guide adults on how to deal with young people. Young volunteers express freely their experiences,feelings and ideas through the publishing of articles, reviews, poems, photographs and illustrations.

Young volunteers at Exposure are involved in all stages of production, developing ideas and planning work, researching, interviewing and gathering information, writing copy, generating and manipulating images, laying out pages and preparing for print, magazine distribution and review.

As well as traditional teen issues, such as sex, drugs, crime and education, during the year Exposure magazine featured articles on child abuse, postcode wars, risk taking, eczema, bereavement, bullying of homosexuals, obsessive-compulsive disorder, video game addiction, single-sex schools, depression, cerebral palsy, child labour, social anxiety, sleep deprivation, animal cruelty, discrimination, escaping war, eating disorders, language barriers, standing out from the crowd, youth culture, animal cruelty, and belief.

Some 4,000 copies of Exposure magazine are distributed to local secondary schools, colleges, youth groups, North London Connexions offices, public buildings, libraries, sports clubs and leisure centres. The magazine is also posted to over 300 other youth and community organisations around Haringey. Exposure offers a free subscription service with over 100 young people having Exposure magazine delivered straight to their homes.
