The Black Artist Database was launched back in June 2020, originally named Black Bandcamp. The aim is to highlight and share work from Black artists on Bandcamp and a wider scale.
Now they have launched the Black Creative Database platform. The database began as a directory of portfolios from Black creatives all over the globe. These included artists working in several areas such as design, digital media and visual art.
The Black Bandcamp rebranded fully in May 2021 to Black Artist Database. This was followed up in August with a series of production masterclasses for aspiring Black artists in partnership with Ableton.
In a press release from the platform, they say:
“The purpose of Black Creative Database is to surface the richness of creative talent from the global Black diaspora in pursuit of wage equity, transparency and stable employment for our extended creative communities.”
Black creatives can submit information about themselves and their work by making a profile on the platform. They can also include their portfolio of work and social media channels.
If you want to set up your profile, you can do so via the submission form here.
