FreeZA is a State Government program which providing funding to bodies such as local councils to form committee of young people to run cultural events for people aged 12 to 25.
The Maroondah FReeZA Group consists of about 12 young people who are responsible for hosting live local music events and includes responsibility in all areas of running these events, such planning, budgeting and promotion.
I attended one of the FreeZA meetings this afternoon, which is based at EVs Youth Centre located in Mount Dandenong Road, Croydon. EVs is home to a number of entertainment acts throughout the year organised by the volunteers within FreeZA.
