Clear Channel is offering free advertising space to support Black-owned businesses in the UK

The initiative, which is run in collaboration with Jamii, offers free outdoor advertising space to promote products and services of Black-owned UK-based businesses.

Jamii was set up in 2016 to promote Black creators and businesses and currently lists over 250 small Black-owned British businesses.

Khalia Ismain, founder of Jamii, explains why an initiative like this is necessary: “We’ve long been championing the incredible makers within the community because their talents deserve greater recognition. When we break down the obstacles faced by Black makers, it sows the seeds for more talent to rise up and seize opportunities.

“This is a huge opportunity for both of us to tell the stories of makers from the community and connect them to anyone and everyone who needs their ideas, craftsmanship and ingenuity in their lives.”

The scheme is open to both physical and online Black retailers and service providers and applications are now open. Jamii will help to select eight businesses and the successful applicants will see their businesses promoted within the first 12 months of the scheme starting in August.

Clear Channel is donating its Adshel Live screens which are described as part of the biggest digital out-of-home network in the UK.

The out-of-home company will also provide design support for the creation of the advertisements and the successful brands will also me listed on Jamii’s marketplace.

Applications close next week on Sunday July 18th.
