Calling all rebel girls, soul sisters, metal mavens and punk rockers! Girls Rock! Camp Aotearoa is coming to New Zealand for the first time.

Launching at MAINZ in Auckland from 15-19 January 2018, Girls Rock! Camp is a week-long holiday programme for young women* where music is the medium to build confidence, empowerment and foster social change.

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 offer.

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 non-conforming youth.
