P.O.C : THE NETWORK FOR PRODUCERS OF COLOUR
P.O.C is an open network for producers of colour, working across the arts, creative & media industries. By ‘producers’, we simply mean anyone who creates or organises to get things done. Members include independent artists, administrators, creative producers, festival organisers, film, TV & radio producers, curators, programmers and project managers.
P.O.C was set up primarily to explore the possibilities of coming together as an interdisciplinary and intergenerational network, across sectors and experience. In an attempt to better equip, connect and champion producers of colour, the network promotes collectivity, resource-sharing and peer-exchange, acknowledging the wealth of resources, assets, ideas and intelligence already existing.
The forum addresses the racial inequities prevalent in the creative industries. Acknowledging producers as the instigators and organisers of projects, ideas and movements, POC asks how a group can organise with equity and promote best practice, striving for unified goals, while respecting individual agency.
