Applications Now Open for Girls Rock! WA October Mini-Camp!

8 Sep


Following the success of the three Girls Rock! WA camps to date, WAM opens applications for the fourth camp to take place in October 2020.

The Girls Rock! program, which originated in­­­ the US and is now practised successfully around the globe, is a week-long day camp of instrumental instruction, band rehearsals, workshops, and fun activities designed to empower and inspire aspiring young female, trans, and non-binary musicians. The program tackles the issue of gender imbalance in the music industry with a focus on the key areas of creativity, positivity, community and empowerment.

Girls Rock! WA Co-ordinator and WAM Audience Development Officer, Em Burrows, says of the program, ‘Each camp to date has had its own character and vibe and this one will be no different. We have amended the format slightly due to current circumstances around Covid-19 but are really pleased to still able to offer a mini-camp that we hope will achieve the same positive outcomes and opportunities for participants.”

The fourth instalment of the Girls Rock! WA camp will feature a range of specialty workshops with notable WA musicians including song writing with rising alt-country star Siobhan Cotchin and production with Emily Jane (DJ Girlname). The camp will culminate with a showcase performance by all campers at Vision Recording and Rehearsal Studios that will also be live streamed for family and friends.
