THE REST OF US: A fresh creative response to marginalisation


    Disappointed by the lack of events created by and for disenfranchised young folk, we (a group of like-minded souls) decided to take matters into our own hands. Thus was born a creative collective called The Rest Of Us (AKA T.R.O.U)

    We curate workshops in various mediums for young individuals in disadvantaged communities, aiming to empower them to share their unique stories and find their voices through positive outlets of self expression. Additionally, we actively organize events.

    What sets us apart is that a significant portion of our generated profits directly supports our mission. By attending our events, you’re not just enjoying great entertainment, you’re actively contributing to the creation of more workshops for our community’s emerging generation.

    Naarm’s beating heart of music is calling once again, and T.R.O.U is answering with another epic party! This time, we’re bringing the heat to the Grace Darling (Basement)!!. If you’ve experienced the energy of our last Close Quarters event, you already know the vibes. With another stellar lineup and a fresh venue, this one’s not to be missed. 

    The selectors: DJ Bohdan, Karyme B2b Konnker, Solomon C, Tinika, Luna

    A carefully curated lineup that promises to be a melting pot of musical flavors, with each artist adding their unique touch to the mix.
