Jazz North's Jazz Camp for Girls
Jazz North have arranged events that offer the first experience of improvisation and playing in a band to develop confidence and musical curiosity for girls.
These one-day workshops are taking place on the same day (Sat 10th February 2019) across the north of England and they will enable girls aged between 9 and 15 to flourish under the mentorship of female role models. Jazz Camp for Girls is a gender-positive space, this means we welcome all girls, including those who don't fit stereotypes.
Jazz Camp for Girls is inspired by an original project created by JazzDanmark and Copenhagen Jazz Festival to address the gender inbalance in jazz. The Danish version is now in 7th year and runs for one week simultaneously in 16 cities around Denmark. Our 5 year goal is to build up a UK Jazz Camp for Girls by adding new partners each year. If you're interested in becoming a partner in 2020 please contact Helena Summerfield on the link below.
