Join musician Emma Kupa to have a go at playing the drums, bass, and guitar and singing, with the teaching and support of a diverse group of women and non-binary and trans facilitators who have played in bands, toured and even been on national radio.
These session are aimed for young women and non-binary and trans young people aged 12-18, especially welcoming LGBTQI and young people from Black, Asian and minoritized communities.
Over three days in October half-term, at The Maltings (25th October) and Centre E (26-27th October) in Ely, there will be opportunities to form bands with like-minded young people and rehearse together with all the equipment needed. An introduction to songwriting will also form part of the event with a focus on fun and creativity.
We will provide a safe, nurturing and joyful environment in which young people can develop musically, personally and socially. No prior experience is needed, and it’s free to attend. To find out more about how to get involved, keep an eye on our website closer to the time of the event.
Grrls Rock Camp Ely developed from our Creative Ideas Lab. This opportunity enabled artists and creative practitioners from across East Cambridgeshire to develop their ideas for engaging communities in the district, in arts and culture.
