Heart Of Gold Girls – March 2012
Music and social activism fit together…perfectly. Apparently, Allison Novack, producer at 1308 Productions, agrees. Two years ago, Allison was named to Teen Voices’ and J-Vibe’s 18 Under 18 lists, and today, at 20, she continues to make a lot of noise for causes through her work.
Heart of Gold had the chance to interview Allison, and she spills the dirt on what she does, why she does it, and what it takes to be a passionate changemaker.

Allison Novack, 17, of Surfside, Florida combines her passion for music with public service by producing teen-friendly concerts with 1308 Productions, a non-profit that she and her family created. The shows give new bands exposure, benefit different causes, and allow teens to help organize the events and gain community involvement. Allison talked with Teen Voices about her work to improve her community and the world through music.
