"CELEBRATING podcasters and content creators OF COLOR in new & emerging media."
THE BLACK & BROWN PODCAST FESTIVAL
Imagine living in a world where your current day to day involves quarantine, constant sterilization, and social distancing. It's March 20, 2020 and this is our new reality. In the midst of planning the inaugural Black & Brown Podcast Festival (NYC) slated for September 2020, the world suddenly changed. Most, if not all of our industry has come to a halt. We now face COVID-19, the pandemic (sounds like a movie). As social distancing is now a part of the lexicon, most festivals and conferences either cancelled or postpone their event as public health and safety are top priority. So, as of right now, the festival is on pause. However, we've created something special in the meantime.
In the interim, we wanted to find a creative and innovative way to highlight our Podcasters, content creators of color and bring new content to your digital screens. Today, we have decided to extend and implement an ongoing platform where we highlight Podcasters and content creators while bringing new content to our global audience.
The digital platform intends to have the same aims and objectives as would a physical BBPF:
To feature and showcase Podcasters and content creators of color
To provide a platform to discover Podcasters and content creators of color
To promote and highlight Podcasters and content creators of color role in new and emerging media
To encourage and promote diversity and inclusion in new and emerging media platforms
To bring original content which highlights creators of color
