Jamaican Creative @Aurora_NG_U Hosts “Endz Off” Creative Mixer Event!


Update 1: “Endz Off” postponed until further notice!

The ability to create is such a beautiful thing, and the Island of Jamaica boasts a plethora of Creatives that help to elevate the Culture in Music, Fashion, Literature, and Art. Unfortunately, not many Creatives are being recognized as physical platforms for them to display their work are in short supply. Enter Kamoey Ng-You a.k.a. “GyalKapone“, a fellow Creative who hopes to make a change and start something new with her Creative Mixer event called, “Endz Off“! With a September 30th date and being held at Chaser’s Cafe (5 Belmont Rd., Kingston), Ng-You invites DJs, Writers, Musicians, Artists, Photographers, and Designers to attend and display their works of art to a new audience which can in turn create Business opportunities, make new connections, and growth in their careers.

When asked the reason for the event, Ng-You said, “I want to give all mediums a chance to just be comfortable in a non-competitive environment, because for young Artists in this Country, everything is a “Fight to the top”. While some competition is healthy, it’s not always the best because a lot of us suffer from issues that our Art gives us refuge from“. While the Event is free to attend and Creatives showcase their works for free, Ng-You hopes to get the attention and assistance of Corporate Jamaica, and encourages attendees to support by purchasing pieces from a Creative. “I’m trying to invite as much people to participate as possible, even if I have to pay for their work to be printed and mounted out of pocket because people need fi buss, and I’ll be damned if I don’t make that happen because I know I wish someone would help me” she added.

Creatives participating in the Mixer are requested to bring a copy of their favourite piece of work that they’re willing to part with as a giveaway session may arise during the event. “I want everyone to leave with someone else’s favorite artwork because that energy and positivity is channeled to others. Sharing the things that make you happy with someone else is one of the greatest things you could ever do and I want to promote that movement. I want everyone to have a smile on their face at the end of the day” said an exuberant Ng-You. She closed by saying, “It’s not about money, it’s not about hype, it’s not about a bagga chatting. It’s about giving everybody a platform to be themselves, be comfortable and make a future“.

The “Endz Off” Creative Mixer will start at 5PM, and ends at 8PM. To participate, contact Kamoey Ng-You at 848-2367, or send her a Direct Message on Instagram at @GyalKapone.

GET TO KNOW: @TheNewWaveJA


For years there have been talks about making venues for fresh young talent to showcase their works in Jamaica. While some have popped up over time, one that is here to stay is held at the Stones Throw Bar every monday by the name of “New Wave”! Located at 1b Mannings Hill Rd. in Kingston, patrons witness displays of Art from some rising stars from 8PM to 12AM. Since its inception in late 2016, it has quickly become the talk of the town, or rather the Island. For those who don’t know, we recently interviewed a couple members behind the “New Wave” team, Lindsey Lodenquai (Head Coordinator), and Davida-Mae Chambers (Social Media Manager/Coordinator). Open your mind for a “New Wave”!

13thStreetPromo: For those who don’t know, what is the origin of New Wave? How did it come about from an idea to an event?
New Wave: New Wave began with Protoje and Jason Panton who envisioned a platform for emerging local talents- once the idea is there, there will always be a way for it to manifest to fruition.
13SP: Describe a standard night at a New Wave event.
NW: VIBESY! It’s always a great feeling being there with persons who are equally enthused about culture and creativity!

13SP: “Jamaica has so much to offer culturally and artistically from this generation”. What’s New Wave’s stance on this comment, and how important is it for events like this to push Jamaica’s talent?
NW: The comment is so true, the talent this generation has is through the roof! Once we have the resources, It is our responsibility to nurture this talent and allow it to flourish.
