About Us


Unknown Magazine is an independent arts and culture publication founded in 2013.


Unknown consists of an online magazine, an annual print edition and regular events, in and around the arts.


We aim to be a platform for facilitating creative collaboration and highlighting up-and-coming artists, allowing the previously unknown to enter into the known.


We welcome free creative expression from people of all backgrounds and levels of experience.
