The objectives of GRC!A

The kaupapa of Girls Rock Camp! Aotearoa is to create the world we want to live in - a more equal and inspiring place. We are a group of feminist musicians from bands like Street Chant, The Beths, Wax Chattels and more, alongside music lovers with years of music industry experience. We are committed to guiding the advancement and empowerment of young women- but we need your help! We are currently running a crowd-funding campaign via Boosted. Please head to our Boosted page to see how you can be a part of our journey and help us reach our goal!

GR!C Aotearoa is in the tradition of Girls Rock! Camp Alliance, an international network which began in 2001 with Rock’n’Roll Camp for Girls in Portland, USA. GRC! Aotearoa is an Incorporated Society, No. 2671372 with 17 members, all of whom contribute a diverse range of music industry expertise and who are all passionate about supporting the next generation of rangitahi who love music.
