New Program for Young Producers in Baw Baw Shire

Regional Arts Victoria has today announced an exciting new partnership with West Gippsland Arts Centre to provide five paid mentorships for young artists aged 13-25 years in Baw Baw Shire.  

The Young Producers Program is the next big project to come from Future Arts Movement, a series of creative arts projects to be delivered by Regional Arts Victoria for the benefit of young Gippsland artists across 2023 and 2024. 

Aimed at developing their skills in event design, planning and producing in addition to production and marketing skills, our five young producers will be mentored by staff from the West Gippsland Arts Centre and Regional Arts Victoria to help develop their skills and professional pathways.  

Delivered as part of a Vic Health initiative called Future Reset: Young People, Arts and Mental Wellbeing, Regional Arts Victoria were one of nine organisations supported across the state to deliver creative projects that ignite social connection among Victoria’s young people. 

Stephanie Clark, Coordinator of the program for Regional Arts Victoria, said the Young Producer Program is a great way for young people to learn new skills and create professional pathways.  

“This is an incredible opportunity for any young person who is looking to develop their skills in event planning, or production management and to create strong professional connections and career pathways”.  

Applications are now open to be part of the Young Producers Program. Apply online by Midnight Sunday 10 December 2023.
