Artful Dodgers Studios, a program of Jesuit Social Services, is raising funds to support the production and release of ‘Reverberate’, a compilation CD of songs by young musicians from the music program. The Artful Dodgers Studio works with marginalised young people who may be experiencing difficult circumstances. ‘Reverberate’ will aim to provide the young participants with what will be, for many, the first time their music has been validated and released to a wider audience.

By relelasing this compilation, the Artful Dodgers Studios will:

  • Compile and document the high quality musical work that passes through the music studio every day, written and performed by young people aged 15-27.
  • Give the young artists a professional experience and physical product of their work to promote their work and showcase their music to a wider audience.
  • Involve young people in the process of creating an album, as well as working on the launch event, learning studio techniques and production requirements for event organisation.
  • Hold a launch event for our compilation during Melbourne Music Week 2015, featuring performances by our young artists.
