    The Funambulist

The 240 contributors to the 24 first issues of The Funambulist 2015–19.

Established in 2010, The Funambulist is an editorial platform that expanded to include a print and online bimestrial magazine in 2015. Funambulist has collaborated with nearly 400 contributors whose outstanding work has established the quality of its editorial line. With the launch of the newest initiative, The Funambulist Network, the intention is to promote this work beyond the pages and airwaves, particularly highlighting the profile and work of the youngest contributors who may be seeking greater visibility. Apart from providing a platform to contributors, the network works as medium to substitute the informal ways through which we have recommended many of our contributors to different organizations these past years. As a homage to the community that has enriched The Funambulist throughout its existence, the objective is to widely share the importance of their work.
