The Ubuntu Magazine launch is a meeting of philosophy, culture and community held at Footscray Community Arts. We invite you to join us in celebrating the official launch of ‘Ubuntu’ with food, drinks and conversation.

Drawing from the Bantu ideology of Ubuntu - “I am because we are” - Producer in Residence Leigh Lule has crafted and curated a platform for community-focused creatives. The first Ubuntu magazine issue features the creative works of Daniel Temesgen, Natasha Hertanto, Sarah Iman, Navaal Saeed, Amarachi Logo and Suzie Wang through a multimedia lens.

Ubuntu is an online, interactive magazine that embraces multimedia; where an audio-series can sit right in-between a playscript and an interactive illustration. With a focus on art, culture and history, Ubuntu platforms the work of young, emerging and mid-career creatives throughout the wider Melbourne area. Engaging and collaborating with varied practices and disciplines, the magazine includes artist features and interviews, alongside newly commissioned audio, visual and written works.
