We are a non-profit organisation that commits to encouraging, engaging and showcasing the musical, artistic and individual talents of girls and women of all ages. Girls Rock! & Ladies Rock!
U.K. will provide girls and young women with the opportunity to become self-reliant, confident, creative women who know that their voices have a right to be heard, regardless of their age, class, size, abilities, sexuality, gender identification, religion, ethnicity, race or experience. Ladies Rock! is part of Girls Rock!
U.K. The first Girls Rock!
U.K. will be a week long camp for 8-18 year olds held in August 2008. Girls Rock!
UK is a founding member of the Girls Rock Camp Alliance. More information about the GRCA’s function, mission and inclusion policies can be found at www.girlsrockcampalliance.org.
We use ‘rock’ as an adjective to describe a mode of thinking. The camp is committed to teaching and exploring many different forms of music.
WHO CAN APPLY TO LADIES ROCK!? Any woman over 18 can apply to Ladies Rock! There is no upper age limit and we are trans-inclusive. No musical experience is necessary and you don’t even have to bring your own instruments. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
The cost of the weekend is £50. We are providing some free places to women who cannot afford to pay this so please let us know if you are in this situation – places will be given on a first come first served basis and the number of free spaces depends on our final funding situation.
You could also make an in kind donation to offset your fees. We need help with transporting equipment, providing food and drinks over the three days and childcare facilities. Please call and let us know if you would like to pay all or part of the cost in this way.
Ideally we would like Ladies Rock! to raise some funds for future projects, especially the girls’ camp next year so if you would like to donate some extra funds we will gratefully accept them! We are a non-profit organisation so anything we raise will be fed back into our projects.
HOW TO PAY. Cheques should be made payable to Girls Rock!
U.K. You can also pay via our website. DEADLINES.
All applications must be received by Friday 20th July 2007. All payment must be received by Tuesday 31st July 2007.
