Fresh Entertainment (FReeZA)
The FReeZA program is an innovative youth development program that provides opportunities for young people across Victoria to enjoy live ALL AGES events that are affordable, accessible, drug, alcohol and smoke-free in supervised and safe venues.
Funding from Frankston City Council and FReeZA grants provided by the Victorian Government give young people the opportunity to become part of a FReeZA committee. The Frankston based FReeZA program is called ‘Fresh Entertainment’.
For over 15 years, the Fresh Entertainment team has planned, organised and run all sorts of live events such as Open Mic Nights, music competitions, local band showcases as well as a stage at Waterfront Festival. All programs and projects are facilitated and supported by Youth Workers.
