Our collective launched in 2016 with a vision to diversify the German mediascape. We centre underrepresented communities by giving our contributors the freedom to tell their stories, their way. Our intersectional magazine is led by Kemi Fatoba.
Besides our online and print magazine, we host panel talks, literary readings, exhibitions, and our annual birthday party. We've had the pleasure of hosting events with personalities like Munroe Bergdorf and Courtney Act and working with clients and partners such as NIKE, Soho House, Studio Olafur Eliasson, D&AD, MYKITA, Tenga, Bacardi, RECONEKT, ZKM Karlsruhe, TikTok, BetterPlace Lab, Museum für Kommunikation Berlin, Migration Hub Heidelberg, The Future is Africa – Christoph Schlingensief’s Operndorf Afrika, Fashion Council Germany, The Lovie Awards, Netflix. We have also collaborated with organisations such as Chicago-based OTV | Open Television to pull off bigger projects like #BraveFutures, a 48-hour intersectional film festival.
In 2020, we expanded the DADDY-verse to include an annual print magazine – a major undertaking for us and one we’re currently self-funding – because if we don’t believe in our vision, then who will? We’re still the same collective of writers, designers, and artists and our online magazine will remain a platform for amplifying the voices of those who are underrepresented in traditional media – either by launching/elevating writing careers or by using our platform to highlight causes we care about.
Our mission to amplify these voices has never been more important. If you’d like to support us as partners or advertisers, we’d love to hear from you. We also happily accept donations.
We help collectives, institutions, and companies communicate better with their diverse audiences. DADDY’s mission has always been to elevate underrepresented voices and our consultancy helps independent collectives, cultural institutions, and global brands make long-term changes to better recruit, retain and promote diverse talent.
