How much?

Independent publishing is thriving and we’ve enjoyed watching the scene snowball at a pleasant rate for the past few years as people take matters into their own hands and decide to make magazines for themselves. The guys at Stack Magazines – the glue of indie magazines in London – are hosting BME Print: new identities in publishing, championing the new wave of magazines created by black and minority ethnic editors, designers and publishers are hitting shelves across the UK. The night will bring together a group of those makers to talk about their aims and ambitions, and why they made the move to print. Featuring Campbell Addy, founder of Nii Journal, a title that explores the issues of empowerment and representation within race; Jason Nicco-Annan, co-founder of Signatures, which champions creativity from Africa and its diaspora; Kieran Yates, founder of British Values, a fanzine celebrating immigrant communities in the UK; Mariel NO, assistant arts & culture editor of gal-dem, a vibrant magazine by women of colour; Rhona Ezuma, founder of Thiiird, a new intersectional publication dedicated to culture, heritage and diversity. If you like indie magazines this is a must.
