Black Stars

Black Stars – Sometimes we need to pro actively and consciously show love for black led organisations, events, arts and activities. So we’ve created the ‘Black Star Branding’, inspired by *Holly Tarquini’s F-rating (link this). The number of black stars indicates the extent to which a product is black led, black created or hosted in black owned spaces. Products can receive a maximum of 3 stars.

Black owned venue/business/organisation
Black produced
Black artist/facilitators

*”The F-Rating is applied to films by cinema’s and film festivals giving movie-goers an easily identifiable label so that they can choose films that fairly represent women on screen and behind the camera. Highlighting these films sends a clear message to distributors, producers and funders that women can and should have more than just a supporting role within the industry”
