"Founded initially as a small Whatsapp group, there was very quickly a collective hunger and desire to unite through shared experiences, in both life and within the workplace, to make a difference. A family of generosity and reciprocity was soon formed. Celebrating our wins, sharing our frustrations and using that energy positively to bring about change. A community of culture, created by people of colour, to help people of colour, for the benefit of society as a whole. In order for us to move towards our mission, it’s important for us to engage with genuine allies. These are companies and individuals that understand our goals and can use their position of privilege to help us work towards a better community for all".

POCC are a members collective and community of creative, like-minded people working in advertising, media, fashion, arts, film and photography, with a mission to accelerate equality and positively change the experiences of people of colour within these industries, both today and for future generations, future generations.

This event is a part of Collective Intimacy, a live programme inspired by The Showroom’s commitment to togetherness and communal knowledge that takes on multiple trans-located narratives of the current Black experience as a point of departure for a cosmopolitan worldview. It hosts interdisciplinary interventions by artists, musicians, designers, writers, collectives and members of the public, who are all invited to distort notions of selfhood and togetherness in the spirit of creating a global community.
