Byron Bay Indigenous youth finish music scholarships at SAE

10 Nov 2016

SAE Byron Bay, in partnership with One Vision Productions, hosted a performance showcase of local Indigenous youth aged 16-23 from the Northern Rivers. The performance was part of a program sponsored by the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS), an initiative supported by the Australian Government.

One Vision Production’s Managing Director and program facilitator Mark Robertson received funding to deliver an educational music course with six indigenous performance artists from across the Northern Rivers.

SAE designs music course for Indigenous youth

SAE in partnership with One Vision Productions developed a customised Certificate III in Music Production for the students, who are one step away from graduation.

It was SAE’s first year involved in the program as education partner – and a huge thanks goes out to SAE Byron Bay’s Audio department for providing supervision and support to the students!

The students are all set to travel to Sydney next week to deliver their final assessment piece that will mark the completion of their certificate. They will be performing a showcase of their work as part of the IAS program wrap at Sydney’s Masonic Hall in mid November.

Indigenous Advantage Strategy

The Indigenous Advantage Strategy (IAS) program proudly supported by the Australian Government, came about through the government’s focus on improving educational and employment outcomes for Indigenous and Torres Straight Islander people. The IAS has delivered five flexible programs, with the sponsorship of the Certificate III in Music Production falling under Children and Schooling.

As a not-for-profit organization, One Vision Productions (OVP) received funding under the Children and Schooling stream to improve participation and retention of Indigenous youth in tertiary education, competency in the use of multi media technology and to foster musical and artistic Indigenous talent.
