MASSIVE

The Christchurch Music Society Trust (trading as Massive Productions) was formed in 1996 to bring together different cultures for combined entertainment and education on youth issues. The main purpose of our organisation is to encourage youth involvement in contemporary, original music and cultural events in Christchurch.

We aim to bring together different cultures for combined entertainment and education on youth issues that are held in safe, alcohol/drug-free environments. To keep ideas fresh and to stay up with the trends of the different sectors catered for, we are continually reviewing our approach to youth events in Canterbury. We have seen a general move away from the traditional "band gig" which was appropriate when we started.

repetitve change

Winter Soulstice, Summer Soulstice and two Equinox dance events are subsidised by the society to widen the audience and make it affordable. It is planned to break even. If profits are made, they are used to off-set the free events such as One Love and Earthdance. These events attract a wide audience age group. Parents have seen that they are well run and feel safe in letting their teenagers attend.

Massive will continue to challenge the status quo to promote youth culture...
