More about What We do:
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.
The Girls Rock! WA Program was established by WAM in January 2019 under the direction of WAM Audience Development Officer, musician and Girls Rock! WA Co-ordinator, Em Burrows. Em has said of the program “I have heard so many established female musicians saying that they wish they had something like Girls Rock! when they were starting out as song writers and performers! Girls Rock! is such a great program and a great way for Perth to nurture its next generation of musicians. It gives young people the chance to learn from experienced musicians and industry personnel in such a welcoming environment. I’m so excited to work with WAM to get this program off the ground!”.
