Ever wanted to learn an instrument, form a band and write a song? At Rock Camp, you’ll form a band, learn an instrument (bass, guitar, vocals, drums or electronic music), watch live music performances from local acts, participate in creative workshops (like making zines and screen printing band t-shirts) and write an original song to be performed at the end of the week.

No music experience necessary!

Who: Young people of marginalised gender identities ages 10-17. This includes girls (trans and cis), gender-diverse people and trans-boys. We recognise that gender is self-identified, and that there is a variety of language people may use to best express their experience of gender. 

When: Monday 26 September – Friday 30 September, 9am-4pm, with a showcase on Saturday 1 October, 1-3pm.

Where: Ainslie Arts Centre, 30 Elouera St, Braddon ACT

Cost: $500 for the week – includes instrument use, all workshops materials and daily morning and afternoon tea. Financial aid (including full and partial scholarships) is available – just ask us!

Applications open until midnight 22nd of August. We have limited places this year so we encourage you to apply early. We will have a waiting list if we reach capacity. Please note, an application does not guarantee a spot and we will confirm placements via email on Wednesday 31st of August.
