ABOUT IGNITE PROGRAMME

Check out the highlights from the 2018 Programme

IGNITE EVENT SERIES

2018 Event Management participants in teams produced FOUR amazing ALL AGES SHOWS throughout June at the Ellen Melville Centre!

This Application part of the programme is where the participants get the opportunity to consider everything they’ve learnt throughout the programme and apply their skills. All proceeds from the events are donated to the charity of the event organiser’s choice.

IGNITE is not only empowering and upskilling the next generation of event managers, we are creating authentic ALL AGES shows, providing key performance opportunities for young and emerging musicians and creating a community of music fans!

GRADUATE TESTIMONIALS

Elleana
2016 Event Management Graduate

I learnt to be daring with my creative vision, just as I learnt to embrace challenging situations that came in doing so. Accepting these challenges allowed me to push my boundaries, which essentially strengthened my decision-making with a combination of intuition and new information.

Hunter
2016 Event Management Graduate

“It was surprising to see people my age who I didn’t know but had exactly the same interests as me. IGNITE brought us all together and introduced me to a whole new side of teamwork. It never felt like we were in competition with each other, all just trying to help each other succeed and get to the finish line together. It was unlike anything I had experienced in a normal classroom.
