Why Gal-Dem’s Closure Feels “Too Close To Home” For UK Black Creatives


“I think [gal-dem’s closure] is sad. I think representation isn’t just seeing yourself in spaces — which if people haven’t noticed, is the new lazy tactic for diversity. ‘Look [here’s] a brown person —so we’ve done the thing now!’ Erm no, Mandy, Karen, Paul and Kent, we haven’t,” said Kevin Morosky, founder and chief creative officer of  POCC, a creative studio powered by Black and brown creatives. “Taking up space and being able to move the industry is part of the conversation and that’s what gal-dem was doing.”
