Please join us as we host the inaugural Miami Girls Rock Camp event at Sweat this Saturday night. There will be a screening of the GIRLS ROCK! Documentary, followed by an info session to find out how you can become involved with the organization. The event runs 6-9 and the film will start at 6:15 sharp! Full info is below.
“This will be an initial information session for people interested in volunteering for Miami Girls Rock Camp. First, we will screen the movie GIRLS ROCK! and then follow it up with an information session about volunteer opportunities, timelines, etc., and we will be able to answer any questions. Additionally, we will have all the volunteer forms available to be filled out and handed to us for processing. Light snacks will be provided.
‘Girls Rock! is a 2007 documentary film that follows four 8-18-year-old girls at the Rock and Roll Camp for Girls in Portland, Oregon, United States. At Rock and Roll Camp, girls ranging in age from eight to 18 are taught that it is 100% okay to be exactly who you are. The girls have a week to select a band, an instrument they may have never played before, and write a song. In between, they are taught by indie rock stars such as Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney various lessons of empowerment from self-defense to anger management. At the end of the week, all the bands perform a concert for over 700 people. The film follows several campers: Laura, a Korean adoptee obsessed with death metal; Misty, who is emerging from a life of meth addiction, homelessness and gang activity; and Amelia, an eight-year old who writes experimental rock songs about her dog Pipi.”‘
