QLD - Girls Rock!

Girls Rock! Australia & The Foundry are proud to present the second ever Girls Rock! event in Australia to be held from Monday Sept 26 - Friday Sept 30 at The Foundry, Brisbane. 

The music mentorship program for self-identified girls, trans and gender non-conforming youth aged 10-17 made its Australian debut in Canberra in January with big names like Courtney Barnett and Jen Cloher assisting as part of the program.

Empowering young girls through a week-long mentorship program Girls Rock! Brisbane (GR!BNE) encourages creativity, self-expression and teamwork through music. Providing a safe environment for girls to express their creativity, the school holiday camp helps them to take pride in their accomplishments and learn not to apologise for making some noise.

A not-for-profit organisation, GR!BNE provides a variety of different musicians and mentors as role models, and a curriculum that is a broad introduction to the world of music. In the space of five days, participants form their own band, learn an instrument, watch live music performances, participate in creative workshops and write an original song that they perform at an end of week showcase. The showcase itself will take place on Saturday, October 1st.
