All My Friends is an Asian and Pacific-led collective of artists designing experiences that range from club nights to markets to video works to exhibitions. Led by Tommo Jiang, Mariadelle "Abbey" Gamit, Tyrun Posimani and Kevin Shen, the collective formed to create more inclusive nightlife spaces and to give “creatives who usually don’t get the chance to work on bigger projects to get involved”. Their work has since evolved to encompass a wider range of event types, each defined by their approach of treating every aspect of an event — from announcement to promotion to documentation — as an artistic project.

In 2023, the collective presented the exhibition Niu Gold Mountain at Studio One Toi Tū, which posed the question: “What are the aspirations of this generation's Asian and Pasifika artists? What is your New Gold Mountain?” The four video works — a collaboration across 13 early career creatives — address the fact that “rarely are Pacific and Asian diasporic identities unpacked in conversation with each other”, with co-founder Tyrun Posimani commenting, “Niu Gold Mountain is about visibility, creating spaces where we can be seen and celebrated; breaking down barriers for connection. Connection cannot happen if no one takes the first step.”
