Party Makers is focused on highlighting some of the great range of talent from across the globe, that have continued to provide new and exciting events adding to the rich texture that makes nightlife so vibrant.

Collectif Nude made up of Zachary Roher and Forki, were selected amidst stiff competition from hundreds of applicants worldwide, they triumphed over other top regional finalists to secure the €20,000 prize money. The pair secured the prize money with their innovative Block Party idea, a two day festival in Toronto celebrating creative talent from a variety of different fields, from chefs, to barbers and tattoo artists.

Speaking on the victory, Forki said: “

As a city Toronto has experienced one of the world’s longest lockdowns. The Block Party is our opportunity, with the support of Havana Club, to bring the city back together again by supporting local creatives, and their livelihoods, which have been so heavily impacted by the pandemic. 

“The Party Makers programme, and the experienced mentors, taught us so much in a short amount of time. It was interesting to hear just how many participants had similar experiences to our own – it was inspiring to listen to their success stories and understand where we should redirect our focus. This support and investment will truly make our vision a reality and we’re excited to have Havana Club on board for the ride.”

Applications for the 2023 Party Makers will open online from October at
