In any aspect of life there are things we know, things we don’t know and things we don’t know that we don’t know. What we do know at BL&CR is that:
- We know that we know where creatives of colour are and we know how to work with them.
- We know that we can connect talented and skilled creatives and agencies to one another and find the best fit.
- We believe that integration is possible and that it can be simple to achieve.
- We exist to assist in painting a vision of the world we want to see where we are all able to contribute equally using our abilities, talent, skills as a springboard/starting point.
- We believe diversity is a strength.
- We are actively working towards a world where our service is not required.

“If man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear.”
― Gene Roddenberry
HOW WE WORK
We strive to ensure that agencies and creatives both feel like they can build a great relationship together; we do this by incorporating a rigorous process in which, through a detailed interview process with agencies and creatives, reach upon a decision on the best fit for both the candidate and the agencies we work with.

Through out professional experience we have recognized that there is a space between black creatives and agencies, therefore, BL&CR aims to be the bridge between the two.
