Mildura Rural City Council’s FReeZA program is part of the Victorian State Government funded initiative that gives young people the opportunity to lead the planning and staging of live music and cultural events in our community.
In 2018 the FReeZA Committee will be responsible for producing, promoting and evaluating five events within the Mildura municipality.
Goals and Objectives

- Implement a youth participation approach for engaging young people in the planning and staging of FReeZA events.
- Stage a broad range of events that is reflective of the youth population in the community.
- Develop young people’s skills through youth development and training activities.
- Improve young people’s career pathways into further education, training, employment and other volunteering opportunities.
- Improve the recognition of young people’s volunteering by acknowledging their contributions to the local community.
