Banyule Youth Services

Jets Events & Production Team

When: Tuesdays (during the school term) from 4pm to 7pm

Where: Jets Studios – 2/24 The Concord, Bundoora 3083

 Attendance to all Jets Weekly Groups requires formal intake and enrollment: Jets Studio does not provide a drop-in service.

Jets Events is a volunteer creative pathways program for young people interested in being involved in creative industries! Develop your skills and portfolio with Jets Studio to expand your opportunities and professional network. Participants refine their skills in event, artist & project management through developing music events and projects for young people in the Banyule community. This also includes content capture and providing media coverage for the events and projects. The All-Ages Tour in 2023 and the Mishmash Magazine project below are only some of the examples of what these young people can do.

In 2024, we will focus on planning and running live music events in Terms 1 & 2. Due to the involvement in YouthFest, all program activity will pause and focus solely on YouthFest ’24 in Term 3. Term 4 will move away from live music and focus on small creative projects and training opportunities.

Don’t know if this program is for you? Here are some of the pathways and creative projects that would benefit from being at Jets on Tuesdays:

Photo & Video at Events: Portrait & Live Music

Graphic Designers: Promotion & Marketing, Social Media Content, Music Artwork & Merchandise

Artists: solo or group performers aspiring to rehearse, perform or record music, or build their network of musician friends and collaborators

Music Management: Talent/Artist Management, Booking Management, Social Media Management, Event Development & Event Management

Promotion: Interviewing & Presenting, Event, Project & Artist Promotion

Jets Production Team in 2024 will be a semester-based program: each semester we will open up for a soloist or group to bring a 6-month goal to Jets, and they will have staff available and weekly, 3-hour rehearsals to support them to achieve it! Click here to apply and be considered.

Being involved with Jets Events can lead to industry training and networking opportunities, developing and managing live music events & projects of your creation. There are also opportunities to bring your music projects/events to life: whether it’s a local artist/organisation you want to collaborate with, or even a project such as a printed zine or photo lookbook, the possibilities are endless. FReeZA programs like this lead to pathway opportunities beyond the program, such as our Creative for Hire & Marketspace.

Enrolment into this program is open for 2024. If you have any further questions or other referrals to similar programs, you can text us on 0403 847 824 or call 03 9098 8000 to chat with one of our youth workers.

The best part of being at Jets Studios is interacting with others, being involved and being part of a team.
