FReeZA grant recipients announced

30 October 2015
Around 80 local government and community organisations across Victoria will share in $5.4 million worth of grants to support local young people to put on smoke, alcohol and drug-free events.

Victorian communities will benefit from hundreds of local arts and music events put on by young people to help develop experience and skills, make local connections and access employment opportunities.  

This includes grants to organisations representing diverse communities across Victoria, such as:

• Queenscliff Music Festival's FOOT-in-the-DOOR program, which provides training and other performance opportunities to local young people and forms part of the main Queenscliff Music Festival. 
• Brimbank City Council, which will support local young people to deliver events that showcase its creative and culturally diverse community.  
• Colac Area Health will host  inclusive events like the Battle of the Bands and the Barwon Skate Series, as well as hosting workshops and providing theatrical, musical and artistic mentors for young people   

All FReeZA events are run in safe environments and are drug, alcohol and smoke-free.
