Girls Rock! Canberra empowers girls, trans and non-binary youth (ages 10-17 years) through a week-long mentorship program that encourages creativity, self-expression and teamwork through music education. In the space of five days, participants will form their own band, learn an instrument, watch live music performances, 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.
GR!C aims to provide a safe environment for girls, trans and non-binary youth 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. Our second session will be held this winter, 10-15 July at Ainslie Arts Centre, Braddon. Camper applications for this session are now open and close Sunday 4 June, 2017.
