The first-ever Social Media Creators Club (SMCC) gathered a diverse group of young Filipino talents from different fields.

The SMCC Meet Up was organised by hip hop impresario-event creator Marco Selorio (@marcoselorio) with the help of Indonesian deejay DJ Edo.  

“In Australia, we want to help inspire and motivate others. The SMCC Meet Up is designed for anyone who creates any kind of content, be it music, dance, online videos, and shows. We hope to unearth more creators and build a more close-knit social media community for Filipinos and Australians through SMCC.”

The next SMCC Meet Up will be happening again in Sydney in January and February. For updates, visit Facebook page MAS Presents.
