GIRLS ROCK WINNIPEG is a registered nonprofit volunteer-based organization dedicated to the empowerment of female, trans, two-spirit, and gender variant youth and adults through collaborative music creation and performance.
Girls Rock Winnipeg was founded in 2017 after the realization that Winnipeg was still not a part of this global movement. We felt our community needed a safe space to empower girls, trans, and gender variant youth and adults through creative collaboration.
After the West End Cultural Centre caught wind of the inception of Girls Rock Winnipeg, they immediately reached out and offered their support.
Our focus, as a volunteer-led nonprofit organization, is to provide strong female and gender variant musical role models for our campers. We believe that when you see someone like you doing something you yourself want to do, then you can realize it is possible.
Through meaningful mentorship, hands on music programming, and skill building workshops, we aim to encourage self esteem, a sense of community, and a passion for music in our campers and volunteers.
Each and every board member, band manager, music teacher, and volunteer involved in Girls Rock Winnipeg is donating their time to our cause and to these amazing youth! If you don’t already know, our camp this year is happening August 19th to 24th at the West End Cultural Centre.
