Girls Rock! Australia
Girls Rock! Australia (GR!A) is a national network of Australian girls rock camps, inspired by programs that developed in the USA and have since become a worldwide movement. Our mission is to empower girls and women, building self-esteem and confidence by amplifying their voices through music education and performance. GR!A is built on principles of access and equity, social action, empowerment and community spirit. By providing a positive, female-lead environment that offers musical instruction as well as a variety of workshops and performances, this program creates leadership opportunities, cultivates a supportive community of peers and mentors, and encourages social change and the development of life skills.
The first program, Girls Rock! Canberra was held on in January 2016 in Canberra. Girls Rock! Brisbane held their first girls rock camp in September 2016 and Girls Rock! Melbourne ran theirs in January 2017.
