Halsey has created a new fund to support black creators.
The 25-year-old singer launched the Black Creators Funding Initiative to help fund and amplify black artists, writers, filmmakers and other creators.
“I am launching this to give funds, resources, and a platform to black creators. Looking for black creators who want to enrich the world with their work,” Halsey said on Instagram. The new fund, known as BCFI, strives to amplify the “art, voice and perspective” of black creators.
The initiative will be funded by Halsey and her team. Halsey will promote recipients on her social media accounts. The singer and her team will announce the first recipients on June 18th.
The biracial singer-songwriter has participated in the nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police.
