Get involved

FReeZA

FReeZA is based around planning and putting on events for young people, developing skills, and getting involved in the local music scene.

Young people with an interest in music, entertainment and event management, meet to plan and deliver FReeZA events. These young people make up the FReeZA committee.

The committee also attend training that is relevant to their areas of interest.

Through youth-led FReeZA committees, young people have the chance to:

  • Decide what types of events and cultural activities are performed in their community.
  • Help create music events and cultural activities in their community.
  • Make decisions and lead projects.
  • Participate in their communities as volunteers.
  • Form close networks with local businesses, schools and other community organisations.

Murrindindi Shire Council coordinates two diverse FReeZA committees in Yea and Alexandra. All young people between 12-25 years old are welcome to join. As part of the committee you will be involved in organising fully supervised,drug, alcohol and smoke free events for young people in the area.

You will receive skills, experience and training in the music industry. Previous events have included band nights, hip-hop events, dance parties and festivals. Young people who have experience in the field are welcome but no previous experience is necessary.
