Girls Rock Dublin Announce 2019 Camp


Following the success of the past two years, Girls Rock Dublin has announced the return of its summer camp for 12-17 year olds.

Set to take place over the last week of June, from 25th-29th, the camp has taken great care in ensuring more inclusivity than ever before. There are spaces for 20 (cis & trans) girls and gender non-binary folks, with half of this number designated as scholarships to applicants from Direct Provision and low-income households.

Over the five days, twenty applicants will form a band, learn an instrument, write a song & perform onstage by the end, with no previous music experience required. They’ll have access to the premium facilities of Dublin’s Sound Training College & Temple Lane Studios, and will run by an all-women team, many being professionals in the local independent music scene. As well as these facilities, backing comes from Dublin City Council, IMRO,, Damn Fine Print & MusicMaker.

The organisation is also running a ‘Donate Your Gear‘ campaign, with instruments received be donated for camps & for teenagers through the Dublin Public Libraries booking system. This will make the equipment available throughout the year when not in use by Girls Rock Dublin.
