Girls Rock! Tāmaki Makarau is a week-long holiday programme to be held in January 2020 for young women, and/or intersex, transgender, or gender non-conforming youth. Open to ages 12 to 17, they’ll learn instruments, form bands, and write original songs, all guided by professional musicians in a women-led environment.


Alongside collaborative learning, participants will take part in workshops about positive body image, zine-making, and performance. Each day, they’ll enjoy lunchtime performances from local artists; in 2019 this included performances by Julia Deans, Brown Boy Magic, Mermaidens, Lexxa, and Fruit Juice Parade.


The kaupapa of Girls Rock! is to empower young women, transgender and gender non-conforming youth by giving them practical skills and role models in a safe, supportive space. We are a non-profit organisation made up of musicians and music lovers with years of music industry experience. We are committed to guiding the advancement and empowerment of young women and gender minorities - but we can’t do it alone.


Girls Rock! Tāmaki Makaurau has already run two successful programmes and is supported by the Tindall Foundation’s Next Gen fund, Auckland Council, Creative Communities, MAINZ, The New Zealand Music Commission, and Recorded Music New Zealand. We’re so grateful for the support of our sponsors but as a non-profit organisation with ongoing costs, it can only take us so far.


We need your help!

Your generosity will help provide young women, transgender and gender non-conforming youth the chance to create, to learn and grow, and to let their voices be heard!

Girls Rock! Camp Aotearoa is registered with the New Zealand Companies Office as an Incorporated Society.

Use of funds

Your donation will go toward crucial costs such as equipment hire and tutor fees, ensuring we get the best tutors and put on a high-quality program. Donations also give us the opportunity to offer free placements to participants from low-income families.
