Girls Rock music camp is set to be held at The Foundry in Brisbane from Monday 26th September to Friday 30th September this year.
Designed to empower self-identified girls, trans and gender non-conforming young people aged 10 to 16 years old, Girls Rock also aims to provide a safe environment, free of judgement – for girls to express their creativity. The Brisbane edition will provide a number of mentors and role models from within the music industry, who are yet to be announced.
Over the five days of the camp, girls will learn to play a musical instrument and participate in workshops, in a broad introduction to music.
The first camp was held in Portland, Oregon in 2001 – and it was announced late last year that the camp would be coming to Australia in 2016 for the first time. Girls Rock then made its Australian debut in January this year in Canberra, with the likes of Courtney Barnett and Jen Cloher acting as mentors for the young attendees.
