Volume Control is an award winning music industry and events mentoring scheme for young people aged 14-19. It offers young people the chance to run their own live music events under the guidance of Oh Yeah staff and mentors. In the process young people learn about the events and music industry, from box office to marketing and promotion, to sound, stage management, artist liaison and more.
We are now looking to recruit a team of 12 enthusiastic young people with a passion for local music and a desire to work in music or events, to organise a series of gigs for 2018.
Successful applicants will meet weekly and work together to make it happen, with help and support from Oh Yeah staff and a dedicated mentor. The project runs for one year and there are around 8 gigs for the team to organise, plan and deliver in that time.
This year we are also offering an OCN qualification as part of the programme.
