Re-Mixed first came to form on 2021 as an international festival that took place online on 16 January, which gathered multiracial, multiethnic, and multicultural philanthropists, professionals, and creatives from across the globe to collaborate and build a foundation for a multicultural future.This first Re-Mixed Festival featured guest speakers and musicians from the US, UK, and Germany.
Re-Mixed then continued to aid in producing, Loving Day, a virtual event put on by the Multiracial Americans of Southern California (MASC), which included a Re-Mixed curated virutal gallery, and well as well produced a virtual networking event for Mixed Asian Media Fest (MAM Fest), a celebration of Mixed Asian creativity and representation in media.
Today, Re-Mixed continues to work to provide a platform and build a unique culture for multiracial, ethnic, and cultural voices, talents, and lifestyles.
