Over the course of two years, the team rallied to raise over £4,000, accumulate 88 pages of content, and publish 1,000 professionally printed copies of our first edition. I: DAWN  was met with immense support at our launch event at the Oxford Foundry in October 2018, and was attended by over 200 supporters. Since then, our first edition has been distributed internationally to over 5 different countries, and across multiple universities in the UK. We have been stocked in Blackwell's and copies of our first edition reside in all 44 colleges of the University of Oxford, where Onyx was founded.



As early as the Second Dynasty Ancient Egyptians used Onyx to form sculptures and create beautiful pieces of artwork. Today Onyx exists as the creative medium that Black artists and writers can use to form and platform their voices. Our vision of uplifting talented Black creatives in academic institutions and the publishing industry has become a reality.
