2016 FReeZA Mentoring Program

PrintThe 2016 FReeZA Mentoring Program is a free program to help young Victorians aged 18 and 25 establish themselves in the music industry.

The mentoring program funded by the Victorian Government will see young participants matched up, one-on-one, with a supportive mentor who is already established within the music industry and their profession. Areas of interest include event management, performance, technical production, marketing and publicity, and music business.

The mentees will have the chance to develop their skills by working on festivals and events as well as a variety of professional development activities. The program will also include the opportunity to hear from a range of experts in intensive master classes. Past mentors include Kirsten Doert of Catherine Harridy Management, MC Azmarino of Diafrix, and Lorrae McKenna from Remote Control Records.

FReeZA Mentoring is open to young people between the ages of 18 – 25 who reside in Victoria with an interest in a career in the Music Industry. This may include those with aspirations to becoming performing artists, composers, producers, sound engineers, event managers, booking agents, publicists, journalists or rock photographers to name a few.
