Empowering girls, trans and gender-diverse young people through music
Girls Rock! Canberra empowers girls, trans and gender diverse young people (ages 10-17 years) through a week-long program that encourages creativity, self-expression and teamwork through music and mentorship. Our Girls Rock Camp program aims to provide a safe environment for girls, trans and gender-diverse young people to express their creativity, take pride in their accomplishments and learn not to apologise for making some noise.
We ran our first program in January 2016, and have run annually since at Ainslie Arts Centre, Braddon. Our upcoming 2019 program will be announced soon – sign up to our newsletter and follow us on social media to hear about future rock camp opportunities. Girls Rock! Canberra was the first Girls Rock Camp to be established in Australia, and is part of the national Girls Rock! Australia network.
Girls Rock! Canberra acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the land that we work on, and we pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
