#VendorWeek 2019: Lice v Lice promotes the work of street paper vendors through Macedonian parliament
Macedonian street paper Lice v Lice got in on the #VendorWeek 2019 celebrations with a number of coinciding activities culminating in members of the Macedonian Assembly selling magazines on the streets with vendors.
2019 is well and truly underway, and the new year has brought with it an impressive array of street paper covers to cast the winter blues away!
This year we asked vendors: if you could give a song as a present this Christmas, what would you choose? The result was the INSP Vendor Playlist, which is now available for your listening pleasure. A song by a former Eurovision star “awakens beautiful memories” for Lice v Lice vendor Kristijan.
Last year, Lice v Lice featured the story of one of its vendors, Tunan Sadik, and stated that he was “one of those people who succeed in their lives”. Less than a year later, Tunan has used his success as a magazine vendor to provide a better home for himself and for the rest of his family. We visited him at home in the Shutka neighbourhood of Skopje to find out more.
INSP was pleased to offer a series of scholarships to support 14 delegates from 9 countries in attending the Global Street Paper Summit that took place in our home city of Glasgow in August.
