We work with participants to refine and record their own songs and learn about the various technologies available. We use iPads and the latest software in all the facets of recording and creating music digitally.
Bush TripsAges 12+
Working with local agencies to take young people into natural bush settings. Fishing, yarning, mobile recording/hip hop sessions, a team effort to build stronger relationships with young people at risk.
Our Concerts are inclusive of the whole community, and usually signal the completion of a program. Our participants are given opportunities to become involved in various stages of the event planning, design, and of course, the performance, while working together toward a common goal.
Film and Photography Workshops
We facilitate opportunities for young people to raise awareness of issues in their community through film and photography – such as alcohol and other drugs, cyber-bullying, and suicide. These films and photos are often featured at the concerts, when appropriate.
