DoucheFLUX Magazine seeks to raise public awareness about poverty. It’s not a hotchpotch of sob stories and random news items, it provides real insight into a largely unknown world.
Co-written by destitute people (discover the authors), DoucheFLUX Magazine has a print run of nearly 2,000 copies and is distributed throughout the Brussels-Capital Region by homeless people themselves. They pay €0.50 per copy and sell them on for €2, quite legally. For many of the magazine vendors, this is one of their main sources of income.
Would you like to contribute to DoucheFLUX Magazine? Join the magazine team meetings, every Wednesday from 10.00 to 13.00 at DoucheFLUX.
Would you like to sell the magazine? The pick-up time for sellers is every Tuesday from 14.00 to 16.30.

The latest issue is available on the streets for only €2! Previous issues can be downloaded below.
