The youth development programme IGNITE is opening its doors to up-and-coming producers, with three of New Zealand's leading producers and engineers announced as mentors.
IGNITE, which nurtures and empowers young people to pursue their passion in music, was established in 2016. Applications for the 2018 programme opened earlier this month, now the programme is being extended to include Music Production, which will run parallel to the Event Management stream. Applications are now open and close on Sunday 11 March, 6pm - apply here.
The 12-week programme will also focus on the power of mentoring; offering participants aged 15-18 a very unique experience and hands-on approach and the opportunity to learn from the best. Participants will also attend various seminars, workshops and venue tours. Under the guidance of their mentors, each participant will produce one finished track by the end of the programme, thanks to Golden Age Studio, Saiko Studios and Depot Sound. There are three placements available and there is no cost to participate in the programme, which will run from April 7 to June 28.
