Girls Rock! Tāmaki Makarau is a week-long music holiday programme to be held in January 2020Auckland
WHO ARE WE?
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.
WHAT IS IT?
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.
WHAT UNDERPINS OUR WORK?
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.
WHAT HAVE WE ACHIEVED?
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.
