Empowering girls, trans and gender non-conforming youth aged 10-17 through a week-long mentorship program, Girls Rock! Brisbane encourages creativity, self-expression and teamwork through music.
Under the guidance of some of Australia’s finest female musicians, you’ll form a band, learn an instrument and perform at rock show! No experience necessary, instruments provided.
The week-long day camp will be held at Backbone in East Brisbane, 23 - 28 September.

Nope. Girls Rock! is open to participants who have a hunger to learn and express themselves through music. Even if you've never picked up an instrument before, you are welcome at Girls Rock!

The entire GR!BNE program for the week is $470.00. This will be invoiced after the registration form has been submitted.
