Rain City Rock Camp combines music education, gender-responsive programming, and a commitment to positive social change. We use music as our vehicle with the goals to empower participants to take risks, question norms, and build their identities and communities.
We center and support youth and adults of marginalized genders, both in the content of our programming and in the identities of the mentors who are a part of our community. Participants in our programs receive instrument instruction from local musicians and write, rehearse and perform original songs with the support of mentors.
Here at Rain City Rock Camp, Rock is a Verb
It’s the fire, the energy, rocking it like you talk it, and it’s what YOU decide to DO. Rock is a vibe, it is genreless. Its roots are with Black Queer Women. It’s about the process and the learning. Rock is you, rock is us. Vibes are the genre– we make all the music that moves us.
