Council is inviting expressions of interest from young people aged 12 to 25 interested in joining the FReeZA Youth Events Crew.
FReeZA is a youth-led program that empowers and supports young people to plan and run music, arts, cultural and recreation events for other young people across the Shire.
The FreeZA Youth Events Crew will have the opportunity to develop valuable event management experience and gain an insight into career pathways in the music and events industries. The group has previously coordinated successful youth-led music events, including the 2019 Golden Plains Battle of the Bands.
FReeZA is a Victorian Government initiative that supports young Victorians to get involved in their community by planning and running drug, smoke and alcohol-free music and cultural events for other young people.
How You Can Be Involved
Young people aged 12 to 25 who have an interest in music, event management, arts, community events or just want to connect with new people and learn new skills are encouraged to submit an expression of interest to join the FreeZA Youth Events Crew.
