New Members Information

We are a members collective and community of creative black and brown, like-minded people working in advertising, media, fashion, arts, film and photography. We exist to accelerate equality, through positively changing the experiences of people of colour within these industries – today and for future generations.

Connecting to our Community

You are here as you have heard of the group through an existing member and requested to join, or have been recommended by an existing member as a talented POC actively working on projects in the advertising and creative industry.

The WhatsApp space

The Pocc WhatsApp group is a positive space for people to:

  • exchange opportunities
  • seek collaborations
  • share knowledge
  • connect with like-minded people
  • inform others about relevant events and news
  • hold concise, intelligent debate on issues relevant to our community
  • offer and ask for support and advice
  • advocate for change and take action

We are respectful of each other’s views and backgrounds; there is no space in the group for hate, -isms or -phobias.

We are a family of generosity and reciprocity so if you give to the group, please ensure you also reach out for help when needed. And if you take from the group, please ensure you contribute and help others.

The WhatsApp space is not for:

  • sharing negative energy, negative news stories or laughing at black or brown pain and trauma
  • calling/DMing people inappropriately
  • spam
  • messaging at unsociable hours (between 10pm and 7am)
  • holding lengthy one to one conversations in the main group (please always take to DM when relevant)

As a new member of the group you will be expected to introduce yourself, and all members will be expected to participate and contribute.

Sign up to be added to the Whatapp group waitlist, our newsletter and the platform (currently in development).

For more information on Pocc, please visit our website or if you have any questions, reach out to us on email.

This is a movement – a community of culture, created by people of colour, to help people of colour.
