The Action Issue: SS23 Indie Oxford Magazine and where to find it

 In Magazine

Lights, camera, ACTION! This SS23 Indie Oxford magazine is here, and we’re super proud of this issue. It’s bursting with brilliant stories about awesome local businesses and inspiring Oxfordshire residents who are standing up for what they believe in, and using action to make our city and county a better place to live. You’ll discover stories about business for good, regenerative farming in the Oxfordshire, young activists, the plight of Oxford night life, businesses tackling food waste, PLUS a recipe from Oli’s Thai and wine inspo from Arbequina.

As this is the action issue, there are lots of tips and ideas throughout the magazine to inspire action including; it’s supporting social impact businesses, helping the local music scene, and making changes for a more sustainable lifestyle.

I want to say a huge thank you to all the local businesses that have supported this issue, the fabulous contributors that have written articles and provided content, Velocity for distributing the magazines so quickly across Oxford, and Annabel Lee and Rianna Low for bringing the whole project together with their fantastic editorial and design skills. If you’d like to support this indie publication, we’d really appreciate it if you could fill in this super short (under 2 mins!) survey about the Indie Oxford Magazine. Thank you in advance for your time.
