NEW SYDNEY MUSIC EVENT TO OFFER A FRESH AND POSITIVE BEGINNING FOR LOCAL YOUTH

In 2013, Ace the Amara approached Foreigndub (Fbi) and Weave Youth Services to create an event that focused on giving today’s youth access to alternative (to mainstream) music that they may not otherwise receive, in a positive and inspiring environment. 'Truth for the Youth' took place on October 26, 2013 at Waterloo Skate Park. 

'Truth for the Youth' presented music from Sydney's Foreigndub DJs, live electronic band, Kobra Kai touring Australia with a new album, and a special showcase from youth members of Weave's ongoing music workshop.  A skate competition was held by pro-skater Roberto Fernandez from lilmexlabel whilst Weave provided food and drink to raise money for resources and education programs. 

With most Sydney music venues and events targeted at young adults, “Truth for the Youth” brings the quality of underground music, positive messages, and safe fun into our local youth culture.

       Succulent

In 2014, Ace the Amara teamed up with photographer and friend, Ashlee Savins to create a coffee table book about female beauty and food.  70 women from across Australia reveled in a positive and supported enjoyment of their favourite foods, celebrating their unique beauty in an environment of female empowerment. Succulent is a liberation of body positivity and a declaration against unrealistic standards of beauty, negative stereotypes used in the media, and dietary fads.  Succulent was sponsored by Embracing Women's Potential and Petty Cash Cafe, and supported by Foreigndub (Fbi).

Between 2008-2009, two friends and I showcased an array of DIY style music, art and fashion events by the name of Rockin' the Random.Rockin' the Random bulldozed through red tape with a no holds barred attitude and a stage to showcase art in its rawest, most dynamic form. From  genre-bending music line-ups to immersive art installations, Burlesque dancers, drag stars, live tattoo art and body mod, Rockin' the Random was unique and it was electric!
