WAM, in partnership with Artgold, is excited to announce that Girls Rock! WA is heading to Kalgoorlie next month!
The Girls Rock! program, which originated in the US and is now practised successfully around the globe, tackles the issue of gender imbalance in the music industry with a focus on the key areas of creativity, positivity, community and empowerment.

The program continues with the support of WAM’s core funding partners Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Lotterywest and APRA AMCOS plus funding from the Contemporary Music Fund to deliver Girls Rock! over 4 years.
