NeverFamous is built for industry professionals with four or more years experience in any of the many roles needed for a touring music event. That said, a key mission of Never Famous is to support the development of young talent and help provide them a pathway to working in the music industry. Currently, this process is available to intern candidates through the NeverFamous cultivated partnerships listed below.
Never Famous has partnered with Diversify The Stage to address the lack of diverse representation among industry professionals. The goals of the partnership are twofold: to build awareness of diversity gaps with management companies, agencies, and promoters through direct conversation, and to provide a central, industry-wide resource for tour staffing, direct connections to suppliers, mental health services, and support for underrepresented communities in live music, events, and touring businesses.
This fall Diversify The Stage is teaming up with Music Forward Foundation in collaboration with She Is The Music, Women In Music and SoundGirls to curate the first Diversify The Stage associated programming for Music Forward’s Virtual Fall 2020 Series targeted towards high-school and college-aged young women and youth of color. A select cohort of young women of color will participate in the fall programs and mentorship opportunities to be eligible for internship and apprenticeship placements with Diversify the Stage industry partners.
Diversify The Stage curated sessions will begin the week of October 26th through October 30th and every Friday after.
