Girls Rock! Camp is a week-long day camp with the very clear goal empowering young female, trans, and gender diverse people to become more active within the music industry. Already a fixture in cities all over the globe, for the first time ever it'll be trekking over to little old Western Australia thanks to WAM, from Monday 14-Saturday 19 January, 2019. Over the course of a week, campers pick an instrument, join a band with other campers and hone their craft with help from different professionals within the industry, all culminating in a huge showcase on the final day.

The Perth edition will be spearheaded by local muso Em Burrows, who had this to say: "I have heard so many established female musicians saying that they wish they had something like Girls Rock! when they were starting out as song writers and performers! Girls Rock! is such a great program and a great way for Perth to nurture its next generation of musicians. It gives young people the chance to learn from experienced musicians and industry personnel in such a welcoming environment. I'm so excited to work with WAM to get this program off the ground!"

The camp is open to female, trans, and non-binary people aged 11-17 with existing experience in either guitar, bass, drums or vocals, and you can register your interest HERE.
