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 the week.
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 some of your favourite
bands (Street Chant, The Beths, carb on carb, Wax Chattels, &
more) and music lovers with years of music industry experience, and
we are committed to guiding the advancement and empowerment of
young women - but we need your help!
We have received generous support from APRA, Recorded Music New
Zealand, the NZ Music Commission and MAINZ, but we need you too.
Our goal is to hold a professional and affordable programme, but to
do that we need to raise at least $7000.
Your donation will go toward crucial costs such as equipment
hire and tutor fees, helping us to put on a high quality programme
possible and keeping it as accessible as possible.
We want to provide free scholarship placements for families that
need it, and the more money we raise, the more scholarships we can
Please donate today. Your generosity will help
provide young women, trans and gender non-conforming youth the
chance to create, learn and grow, and make some noise!
*"Young Women" includes female, trans and and gender
