The Philosophy Behind “New Waves from the SEA”

In today’s fast-changing digital world, many of us have questions and dreams. How can we find our place in the creative and digital economy? Can our unique ideas truly make a difference? Where should we start on this journey of creativity and innovation?

Let’s explore this journey together, as we dive into a theme that’s more than just a catchy acronym. It goes beyond borders and speaks to the uncharted potential within each of us, young or old, experienced or beginners. This theme embodies a philosophy that reflects the spirit of a digital generation ready to redefine the creative and digital landscape.

This philosophy is the heart of ACE-YS 2023: ‘New Waves from the SEA.’

“SEA” stands for Southeast Asia, a region rich in culture, biodiversity, and history. But ‘SEA’ represents more than just geography; it symbolizes a profound idea. In ‘SEA,’ we find an ocean of untapped creativity, unrestrained potential, and unbridled dreams.

‘New Waves from the SEA’ is a call to action. It marks the beginning of something significant, starting in Indonesia and expanding to ASEAN+3 countries and beyond throughout Asia in the coming year.

The launch of this program in 2023 is a long-term commitment, a promise to capture every concern, aspiration, and glimmer of hope related to the creative and digital industries.

At ACE-YS, we don’t just collect your thoughts; we empower your ideas and amplify your voices. ‘New Waves from the SEA’ marks a significant shift, the start of an exploration of extraordinary possibilities, guided by digital leaders and nurtured by those with a vision for the future.

ACE-YS 2023: ‘New Waves from the SEA’ is not just a platform; it’s a space designed to ride the waves of questions, ideas, and dreams you bring. Here, you don’t need to be a seasoned pro. We’re all beginners, united by the belief in the boundless potential of youth.

This creative space believes unwaveringly in the limitless nature of creativity. It knows no boundaries, recognizes no limits, and thrives on talent from all walks of life, regardless of sector or field. Our journey is more than riding digital waves; it’s about creating a new wave, a mark that’s unique, indelible, and emblematic of a progressive digital era.

So, get ready to explore the unknown, to understand the digital waves shaping your journey. Together, we’re not just an event; we’re a movement, a transformation, and a significant turning point.

Yes, we’re not just here to ride the wave; we’re here to make waves.

The excitement, the vision, and the commitment to this theme are embodied in every word, gesture, and action. We aspire to redefine creativity, foster innovation, and become catalysts for change in the digital landscape. It’s not just a summit; it’s an opportunity for you to leave your mark on a digital canvas yet to be fully explored.

A heartfelt shout-out to our incredible sponsors and partners for making ACE-YS 2023: ‘New Waves from the SEA’ a reality. Lazada, our main sponsor, and Telkomsel, Mandiri, and Pertamina, our sponsors, your support is invaluable in empowering the youth and driving innovation.
