LUMIN DIY/indie press began with LUMIN Journal 1, used as a means of breaking into our art-school-centric local arts scene. It also happened to be Cardiff’s only journal for cross-disciplinary arts. Since then, we’ve continued LUMIN Journal creating a space for experimental + marginalised artists in Wales and wider, publishing poetry chapbooks and art pamphlets, and working with marginalised communities to create publications.
LUMIN works through curation + dialogue. We work with marginalised artists and writers (+ those excluded from the arts scene) collaboratively, forming ongoing relationships; from initial discussions, through development and creation, and on towards exhibitions + future works.
