ICE has been working with Western Sydney communities through creative courses and events for decades. With a particular focus on screen and digital platforms, they develop projects that give voice to disadvantaged and minority groups, fostering cultural expression and social cohesion.
A notable recent addition is the All Girl Electronic series of workshops for 15 to 25-year-old female-identifying youth, offering training and mentoring from Sydney musicians and producers for free. One of the facilitators, Del Lumanta, sees the connection between young people and established artists as mutually encouraging. “The workshops have been a great space to share skills and music with one another,” says Lumanta. “Our mentors also share their stories and dispel music-making myths, making it less intimidating for any person to start making music.”
