The Portfolio Project

Up and coming musicians are encouraged to apply for mentorship as a part of our Portfolio program. This program is The Boîte's partnership with Music Victoria and VMDO to deliver mentorship and support the next wave of musicians to create their portfolios.

Located in Melbourne CBD, this program creates opportunities successful applicants to create, perform, learn and network in a safe and nurturing environment. 

The first iteration of this program will be begin in June, 2022 and run over the course of 6 months. 

 

This initiative is part of The Boite’s vision for a music industry that creates opportunities for culturally and linguistically diverse musicians and be invited to our creative ecosystem. They aim to help create local connections and followers, foster an understanding of the Australian music market, build capacity to invest in self-promotion, create networks for early career support to build professional portfolios. Successful applicants will also receive a Music Victoria membership and The Boite Artist/Ensemble Membership.

 

The Portfolio Project will consist of 4 phases; passport, suitcase, lounge and flight. 

 

  • 'Passport’ will include a series of intensive marketing material creation sessions and capacity building workshops. This will involve creation of high quality studio photo sets and video recordings of live performances for the participating artists. The sessions will also include workshops to review their current promotional materials and channels, and create an Electronic Press Kit (including professionally written bios).

  • ‘Suitcase’ will see artists involved in promotional and audience development activities like smaller showcase events, radio appearances and print editorials.

  • ‘Lounge’ will see participants be given professional introductions and networking opportunities. 

  • And finally, ‘Flight’ will see ticketed concerts, celebrating the achievements of the project, with targeted invitations sent to key industry players

 

The Boite would like to encourage culturally diverse artists and bands to apply for the program by 15th of May. The first information session will take place in late April.
