BCM was founded by Audrey Solvar, a London-based event company owner who’s had years of experience in the journalism and production industry, working for companies such as YouTube and MTV. After being in contact with various up and coming black creators for YouTube Black in 2017, she felt that they had not been receiving the recognition they deserve.
“That was the light bulb moment from which Black Creators Matter was inspired,” explains Audrey on the BCM website. “I wanted to create an inclusive community where Black Content Creators could get information, collaborate, network and thrive, as part of a group that really cares.”

Some of the benefits of joining BCM are:
- Access to events, such as masterclasses, programmes, workshops and parties, where creators can learn new skills around their craft and network with other BCM members.
- Working with their team of content production experts, who can help with creating and promoting vlogs, blogs and articles.
- Access to brands the platform is affiliated with for sponsorship and other opportunities.
In the platform’s own words: “Want to be apart of the best online community of black content creators? Do you have a lot of idea running riot in your head you just can’t wait to spill? Are you tired of struggling with creator’s block all by yourself? If your answer is a resounding YES follow and support Black Creators Matter.”
