The Golden Plains FReeZA program has extended itself to two committees given the vast geography of the municipality. The committees consist of people aged 12 – 19 who have an interest in music and art. The FReeZA committees are interested in providing more opportunities for young people to perform and develop skills that will assist for a career in the music industry.

Deep Freeze is a FReeZA group based in North West Victoria, consisting of young people from Dimboola, Jeparit, Nhill and Rainbow who have a passion for music and cultural events, providing activities for rurally isolated young people. The groups meet regularly to share ideas and plan their events. Each group focuses on running affordable underage events for all young people to enjoy. The groups aim to involve young people in their community in having a fun time and showcasing their talents, whether it be in the crowd or actually performing at events.
