AMPLIFY 2019 – Event Producer Mentorship
Applications for AMPLIFY 2019 are now open!
AMPLIFY is Darebin Music Feast’s Event Producer Mentorship. A targeted professional development opportunity, it seeks to address inequality in the music industry by supporting and amplifying lesser heard voices.
Each year, AMPLIFY offers a targeted group of Darebin-based, early-career music event producers access to mentoring and the opportunity to program and produce a feature event as part of Darebin Music Feast.
In 2019, AMPLIFY is open to Youth music event producers (aged 16–25) who live, work, study or play in the City of Darebin. Under the mentorship of a music industry professional, the successful AMPLIFY 2019 applicant will program, produce and promote a feature event for Darebin Music Feast 2019 that celebrates music makers and lovers of all ages. The event will be held at a Darebin venue on Sunday 27 October 2019.
