Event Details

Global style icon, singer-songwriter, actor, and arts lover Troye Sivan reveals his take on beauty, creativity, fluidity, and queer politics in a live intimate conversation with Lillian Ahenkan – aka Flex Mami – another multi-talented creative.  

Troye is not one to shy away from bending the rules by pushing creative boundaries. After rising to fame as a platinum selling musician and collaborating with the likes of Ariana Grande, Charli XCX and Kacey Musgraves, he has branched out with lead roles in TV and film.   

Troye also delights in creating highly visual moments by collaborating with designers, digital artists and stylists such as Marc Sebastian Faiella and Jason Ebeyer. Troye’s love of contemporary art infuses his work and his home. He is an avid collector of Australian contemporary artists such as Tom Polo, NELL, and Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran (whose work Earth Deities is a highlight of Vivid Sydney’s 2022 Light Walk). His eye for talent led to an installation commission with Miami Art Week 2021.

Discover what drives and inspires Troye when he sits down in conversation with Ghanaian-Australian Lillian Ahenkan (aka Flex Mami) – another multidisciplinary millennial making waves in the Australian entertainment industry. She’s an entrepreneur, author (The Success Experiment), DJ, TV presenter (Build / MTV), model and speaker who is passionate about bringing conversations surrounding identity, intersectionality and mental health to the surface. These two know the joys and pitfalls of growing up in the public eye, traversing global collaborations, and juggling multiple projects whilst trying to stay grounded and healthy. 

Catch a glimpse of the zeitgeist. Join these two creative forces as they discuss their approach to work, who inspires them and their latest collaborations. 

Troye is appearing as part of Vivid Ideas' Global Storytellers series. We celebrate those who push creative boundaries, tell stories that challenge the status quo and drive change for good.
