Support new talent.
There’s often a barrier for entry for young black creatives in the creative industries. How can we hope to see more black talent, if we don’t give them the opportunities to refine their craft? Consider giving someone new a chance to pitch for a brief. The pitching experience alone, with constructive feedback, will help them on their journey to succeed.
At the start of each month, this page will be updated to showcase different creatives that would value an extra consideration.
