The CMTO is working alongside IndigiTUBE on AMPLIFY, a mentoring program supporting deadly emerging First Nations artists.
Pathways Training Manager, Mikaela Ford and IndigiTUBE manager Jaja Dare have collaborated to create a mentoring program for artists to meet online and hear from a range of guest speakers to hone their craft.
The AMPLIFY artists are:
- Aimee Hannan
- Murringaahddi – Musicartculture
- Maurial Spearim
- Donovan Rice Music
- Jeffrey James Black
- Boox Kid
- Rachael Lia
- Jamahl Ryder
- Nathan May Music.
- Nathaniel Sims
Backing the artists in the program are the legendary Emily Wurramara, Kobie Dee and Mau Power, who are hosting online yarn sessions with the artists; sharing knowledge, contacts and experiences to get their music out there. The program is set to finish on Kaurna Country with a songwriting workshop and a nationally promoted gig in November, restrictions permitting.
CMTO Trainer and Hip Hop Artist Kween G hosted the digital ‘Be Media Ready’ session for the artists on Thursday 9th September.
