To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’ve teamed up with Girls Rock! Canberra to host a fundraiser, with all ticket sales going towards their 2020 camp.

Girls Rock! is an international network of independent arts and feminist social justice groups, with a focus on running band camps that provide girls, trans and gender non-conforming youths a supportive safe space to grow and express themselves via music.

Join us from 4pm for a special screening of the new documentary No Time for Quiet:

 

No Time for Quiet - D. Samantha Dinning and Hylton Shaw, 2019, PG, 84mins, Australia

During a long hot summer, 40 girls and gender-diverse youth aged 10 to 17 converge in Brunswick for the inaugural week-long Girls Rock! Melbourne camp.

Greeting them are a host of dedicated volunteers – local female rock legends and teachers, all keen to empower the participants through rock'n'roll.

Over the course of the week, and the following months, we follow four participants as they struggle to find their sense of belonging and identity through music.
