girls rock! the movie

March 7, 2008

Hey y’all.
girls rock movie flier

Something you might now know about me! I volunteer with the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, which is just one of a BUNCH of girls rock camps around the US, UK, Canada, and Sweden. Mainly I do band art workshops, where we teach the girls to make buttons, do screenprinted band logos on t-shirts, and make zines.

There is a new documentary premiering this weekend which focuses primarily on the first camp, Portland Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls.

From an email promoting the movie:

“If you’re in New York, come on out to the Village East Cinema now through March 13th to see this awesome film. We’re pleased to announce that Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls is participating in 2 special film events this weekend:
