Girls Rock! Camp Comes to Auckland

Girls Rock! Camp Comes to Auckland
And Launches Crowd-Funding Campaign

Feminist music programme Girls Rock! Camp Aotearoa is coming to New Zealand for the first time in 2018.

Launching at MAINZ in Auckland from 15-19 January 2018, Girls Rock! Camp is a week-long holiday programme for young women*, where music is the medium to build confidence, empowerment and foster social change.

Up to 40 campers between the ages of 12-17 years will form bands, learn instruments, attend workshops and write an original song to be performed at a concert for friends and family at the end of the week.

The kaupapa of Girls Rock! Camp Aotearoa is to create the world we want to live in - a more equal and inspiring place. That's why today we're launching a crowd-funding campaign! Check out our video to learn more:


We are a group of feminist musicians from bands like Street Chant, The Beths, Wax Chattels and more, alongside music lovers with years of music industry experience. We are committed to guiding the advancement and empowerment of young women- but we need the support of the public!

We have received generous funding from APRA, Recorded Music New Zealand, the NZ Music Commission and MAINZ, but we need you too.
Our goal is to hold a professional and affordable programme, so we have launched a crowd-funding campaign via Boosted to raise our funding goal of $7000.

Donations will go toward crucial costs such as equipment hire and tutor fees, helping to put on the best quality camp possible and keep the programme accessible for all. We want to provide free scholarship placements for families that need it, and the more money we raise, the more scholarships we can offer.

Please head to our Boosted page and donate today. Your generosity will help provide young women, trans and gender nonconforming youth with the chance to create, learn and grow, and make some noise!

*"Young Women” includes female, trans and and gender non-conforming youth
