Given by 13 generous donors in around 5 months

The kaupapa of Girls Rock and To the Front is to empower youth by giving them practical skills and role models in a safe, supportive space.


Running from Monday the 8th of July to Saturday the 13th, To The Front is open to youth aged 12-17 years who are women, intersex, trans, takatāpui and gender diverse. They’ll learn instruments, form bands, write original songs, and perform at a showcase, all guided by professional musicians. Alongside collaborative learning, participants will take part in workshops about DIY merchandise, songwriting and performance skills. Each day they’ll enjoy lunchtime performances from local artists. The week will be held at Massey Toi Rauwhārangi College of Creative Arts, Wellington.

To the Front Pōneke are introducing their first-ever Pathways Programme, for youth who have already been a part of Girls Rock/To The Front and want to challenge themselves to try something new! We're looking for 16-19 year-olds to be a part of our Pathways programme, developing our next generation of To The Front organisers. As well as helping out coordinators with day-to-day operations at the programme, they will participate in specialty workshops illuminating paths for music beyond high school, form a Pathways band to perform at our showcase, and develop new networks by getting to know our coordinators, mentors, and Pathways peers.
