With Declan Burgess
Hey its December and the days are long and the evenings pleasant, so it’s the best time to kick off your heels and go straight to the Girl Power Party in Footscray this Friday December 16. Organised by Phoenix Youth Hub and FReeZA, the Girl Power Partyis a boisterous bash celebrating the youthful and insightful women of Melbourne through circus arts, music and dance. There are a whole heap of exhilarating sets including singer Niasha, jazz queen Kaiit and rapper and producer Stephanie Christine and all girl FReeZA Dj Mentees as well as spoken word sets from Rehina and Soerti Kadir. The party runs from 3pm to 8.30pm.
That’s not all that’s on this week, because on Thursday December 15, SYN and RMITV are roaring into the RMIT City Campus for an hour of live comedy that for nothing but the PTV cost you can be a part of. That’s right, popular SYN program, In Joke Tonight are filming and live streaming a night full of (maybe) bad puns and observations and you can come into the luxurious state of the art studio and watch it all happen. The official lineup is top secret but In Joke Tonight has been known to host comic legends like Dave Hughes, Aunty Donna and Sammy J and Randy, will any of them be there? Who knows? If the suspense is killing you, or you want some delicious (as free food always is) snacks then head to the In Joke Tonight Facebook page.
Also on the same day an hour before the live comedy stream SYN Media are running an information session for their next upcoming radio course. SYN (Student Youth Network) is a community run media organisation that offers broadcasting training to young people aged between 12 and 25. SYN has heap of great programs from television and screen to radio and even event and IT management. Getting involved with SYN Media is a great way to get real hands on experience and training in any of those fields. The information session is totally free to attend and only requires an RSPV at syn.org.au.
