For the first time since inception in 2016, the New Wave team organised a block party at Itopia Life in Kingston.

Primarily, New Wave is known for a number of culture-infused events around town.

The popular Celebrity Closet thrifting affair; New Wave Film Night; Proteje’s A Matter Of Time album launch; Myers, Fletcher & Gordon’s Sensory art affair at Boone Hall; and MoDA Music during the Collection MoDA series are a few of the events curated by the New Wave team.

The events have developed into a hotbox of local talent within all facets of the creative industry.

We Want More: New Wave Block Party

“The New Wave brand has identified a common ground to assist current, new and emerging creatives to further expose and highlight their talents, thus pushing Jamaican culture forward,” read a blurb from the New Wave web page.

The typical New Wave affair incorporates music, visual arts, drama, comedy, live cooking, dance and film amongst other art disciplines.

The New Wave Block Party was no different and maintained the thread of spotlighting budding creatives.
