Apply now for Grampians Music Festival youth mentorships

Grampians Music Festival (GMF) and Northern Grampians Shire Council have teamed up to offer five mentorships to young people wanting to gain experience in music events management.

GMF Director Carly Flecknoe said young people from within Northern Grampians Shire would work with the festival committee in the areas of event management, marketing and public relations, finance, artist management, and volunteer management.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in a really exciting event and gain practical experience right here in your own backyard,” Mrs Flecknoe said.

“The successful applicants will work closely with the GMF committee in the months leading up to the festival, and also work at the festival helping with all facets of the event’s management.

“GMF is in its second year now and the committee is really keen to give our local young people an opportunity to get involved, especially if they’re interested in event management and live music. Organising the festival is a really exciting process and we know our mentees will get a lot out of it.”

Mrs Flecknoe said the mentorship program had been made possible with the generous support of ABC’s Heywire.

The mentorship program runs from 1 November 2017 and finishes on the last day of the festival, Sunday 4 February 2018. Applicants must be aged between 17 and 21 years, be available to attend fortnightly meetings, and be able to work every day on site at the festival, from 2 to 4 February in Halls Gap.
