Welcome toAstronomy in Colour

There is always light, if only we are brave enough to see it — if only we are brave enough to BE it.


We are a community actively working to transform astronomy – to make it more inclusive and welcoming for all. We have regular fortnightly meetings as well as other events throughout the year. If you would like to join, please email us or contact us via social media (see links above and below).

Our Vision
For astronomy to transform into an environment where underrepresented groups (such as Black, Asian, and mixed race women and femmes) can thrive and succeed in their research careers.

Our Mission
Our mission is to conduct outreach projects that promote participation and interest in astronomy by underrepresented groups within the field. Through this, we aim to inspire the next generation of women and femme (non-binary and trans included) astronomers.
