    What is VOLT?

    VOLT is your digital home for independent live performance practitioners, with resources, opportunities, new courses, templates and most importantly, a supportive community for independent practitioners right across Aotearoa. It is built as a Progressive Web App (PWA) which means it runs as an app when downloaded/saved on your smartphone, but also appears as as website on a desktop. The name VOLT pays homage to the energy transmission that is so unique to the live performance sector, whether that be creatives in a rehearsal room collaborating together, or performer and audience member with that innate trust you have in each other at a performance. When it came to naming this platform, we were thinking about that electrical charge or that energy transmission = voltage. VOLT is also a pun for vault of knowledge and resource that will be unlocked as part of this community.

    What can I learn through VOLT?

    VOLT will be running a series of courses as well as home to many live performance specific ready to use templates and resources. Our hero course, The Producer Power Up Challenge will be available twice a year.
