Women’s Representation in Music from Camp Cope to Girls Rock!
Over the past few years, there has been much discussion about female representation in the music industry. As Camp Cope at the Falls Festival highlighted, male artists are more likely to be booked for festivals, played on the radio and they make up the overwhelming majority of paid music makers in Australia. There are some looking to address this a week-long day camp, called GirlsRock!Sydney has been organized. Specifically for young females age 10-17 it aims to inspire girls through the power of music. To talk to us about the program is Rose Chan, also known as musician Okin Osan, one of the mentors at Girls Rock! Sydney.
The final concert for the camp will be taking place on the 20th January at 12 at the Factory Floor, Marrickville
