Our new directory for Black creatives is an extension of our mission: to destroy the myth that creative fields are not lucrative + fulfilling pathways to success for Black creatives by providing resources, content, products, and a community of support.
Our goal is to provide Black creatives with the support they need to build the future they want for themselves and the next generation.
We are ALWAYS being asked for talent or being tagged in posts for talent and wanted to find an easier way to make connections for our community. Time is literally money and this allows companies, fellow Creatives, and more to proactively seek out the professionals they need.
The directory is FREE for Creatives, you can add your info to it here.
In honor of our directory launch, we’d like to highlight a few of the Creatives currently listed in our directory.
