Calling all rebel girls, soul sisters, metal mavens and punk rockers! Girls Rock! Camp Aotearoa is coming to New Zealand for the second time in January 2019.
Girls Rock! Camp is a week-long holiday programme for young women*, where music is the medium to build confidence, empowerment and foster social change.
Up to 40 campers between the ages of 12-17 years will form bands, learn instruments, attend workshops and write an original song to be performed at a concert for friends and family at the end of camp.
*"Young Women” includes female, trans-gender, intersex and non-binary youth.
*Please note the 'camp' will run 9am to 4pm, there is no actual camping involved.
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!
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.
