Ali MC combines his expertise in the creative arts, unique travel experience around the globe and professional commitment to produce a range of projects that speak loud for social justice. He invites you to explore the words, music and images that create an unprecedented body of genuinely unique and passionate work.
Brought up between Australia and New Zealand, Ali MC saw firsthand the disparity between the haves and the have-nots, in particular, the downpression of Indigenous communities. These early experiences set the tone for a creative and professional life that seeks to explore and understand the stories not seen on television screens.
Through music, writing, photography and social action, Ali MC provides a voice for the disenfranchised and lays down the challenge for change.
