Diversity is the key to rich experiences.

The Amexem Society's mandate is to facilitate a collaborative partnership with the city of Vancouver on behalf of various artists and performers within the Reggae, Dancehall, Hip-hop, Spoken Word, Soul/Neo/Latin-Soul genres. Our success is rooted in our efforts to holistically integrate the distinct vibe of the culture surrounding these genres into the Vancouver Roots Cultural Experience. By bridging the gap between Vancouver and domestic or international artists typically unknown to Vancouver's mainstream music landscape, we hope to establish a sustainable channel for endless opportunities whilst simultaneously contributing to the betterment of Vancouver's heritage through the arts and cultural awareness.
