To the Front is a paid holiday programme with an allocation of financial assistance available for low-income families.
Sponsorships are available for Māori and Pasifika. Please see the relevant campers applications for more info.
Applicants don’t need any previous musical experience and participants will be at all different levels.
The programme is open to youth aged 12-17 years who are women, trans, intersex, takatāpui, and gender diverse.
If you’ve already been a part of Girls Rock/To The Front and want to challenge yourself to try something new, we’re looking for 16-19 year-olds to be a part of our Pathways programme, developing our next generation of To The Front organisers.
You’ll participate in specialty collaborative workshops illuminating paths for music beyond high school, and develop new networks in the music community.
Pathways youth can participate at the regional holiday programmes, at events and workshops, which will be announced on each regional programme page.
Stay in touch for updates and info about upcoming events.
We only email every once in a while.
