AMPLIFY is FUSE Darebin’s Event Producer Mentorship. Formerly part of Darebin Music Feast, AMPLIFY is a targeted professional development opportunity that seeks to address inequality in the music industry by supporting and amplifying lesser heard voices.

Each year, AMPLIFY offers someone from a targeted group of Darebin-based music event producers access to mentoring and the opportunity to program and produce a feature event as part of FUSE Darebin.

In 2021, AMPLIFY is open to music event producers aged 55+ who live, work or study in the City of Darebin. Under the mentorship of a music industry professional, the successful AMPLIFY 2021 applicant will program, produce and promote a music-based feature event for FUSE Autumn 2021.
