#blkcreatives (pronounced hashtag Black creatives) was created by Melissa Kimble to uplift Black creatives + remind us of our creative freedom.
WHY WE EXIST
We are here to destroy the myth that creative fields are not lucrative + fulfilling pathways to success for Black creatives.
Our goal is to provide Black creatives the support they need to build the future they want for themselves and the next generation.
In order to be sustainable and keep moving the world forward, Black creativity must be supported, nurtured, and protected – #blkcreatives does that by providing:
– access to job opportunities via our job board and our directory
– content, products, and experiences that improve your mental, emotional, and financial well being as a Black creative.
– a dope community of other smart, sharp, and compassionate Black people
and it all starts with our newsletter that puts good news (job opps, marathon-like insight, creative resources + more) in your digital mailbox. Sign up here.
