BENEFITING: Girls Rock Detroit
ORGANIZER: Girls Rock Detroit
EVENT: Rock Roulette 2017
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2017
Girls Rock Detroit organizes a summer camp for girls who want to rock! During the week they learn an instrument, form a band, and write an original song together. At the end of the week they perform their songs at a spectacular showcase for friends and family. Our campers have gone on to continue playing their instruments & writing songs.
Women musicians and activists from the Detroit area volunteer their time to mentor the campers in an supportive and empowering environment, offering instrument lessons, band coaching, and workshops about subjects ranging from feminism and self-defense to recording and button-making. Their expertise and support provides our campers with self-esteem and confidence in their own creativity and the power of community.
We offer these camps with a sliding scale tuition so that no youngster will be turned away because she cannot afford it.
Contributing to our campaign allows us to continue offering this camp to those who need it most.
