Workshop/Assembly Proposal for GRD 2019
Some general information about workshops and assemblies:
In addition to the music-related elements of camp, rockers attend 2 workshops each day relating to musical performance, feminism and social justice, self-care, DIY, intersectionality, music business, arts/crafts, STEAM subjects, leadership, etc. We aim to empower rockers through education, hands-on experimentation and community problem-solving. All workshops and assemblies will be held Monday, July 8 - Friday, July 12 2019 at Ricardo Flores Magon Academy: 5301 Lowell Blvd, Denver, CO 80221.
Assemblies: We begin and end each day of camp with an assembly, often open to the entire camp community. Assemblies generally run from about 8-9am and 4:15-5pm each day and serve a rejuvenating, healing, energizing, community building, educating function. Examples of past assemblies include: scream circles, theme song jams, physical activities/games/ice breakers, yoga/meditation, appreciation activities, radical cheerleading, stage presence and conflict resolution.
Workshops: Typically held each day in the morning (11am-12pm) and afternoon (2-3pm), workshops can be tailored to any age group (campers are often split into the following age groups: 8-10, 11 & 12, and 13-17 years old), size or experience as appropriate. Campers will have the option to choose between more than one workshop at a time, so we encourage you to offer your session more than once during the week if possible. Examples of past workshop topics include: pedals, gender and identity, zine making, contact microphones, self-recording, healthy body image, making music videos, beatboxing, dance, setting personal boundaries, etc. Just about anything goes!
**One of our only non-negotiables is that your workshop/assembly be as hands-on and interactive as possible, so we strongly discourage the use of presentation tools like PowerPoint. We will be able to provide projectors, supplies and sound as needed.
If you have more than one idea for a workshop/assembly, that's great! Please submit a separate proposal for each of your ideas. We strongly encourage STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) and leadership-oriented sessions.
One workshop we simply can't do without is Monday afternoon's Songwriting Workshop. We encourage creative, collaborative approaches to songwriting, so please let us know if you believe you can help develop/facilitate that session this year!
Submission deadline: May 31, 2019

Are you interested in facilitating a workshop or an assembly? *
Please provide an idea of what you'd like to cover in your session:
What learning outcomes do you hope to accomplish? Keeping the Girls Rock mission in mind, what should the campers know/be able to do after participating in your workshop?
How will you make your session as interactive, hands-on, interesting and effective as possible?
Understanding that gender oppression is informed by white supremacy, gender equality can only be effective when we address and fight racism, classism, and oppression in all its forms. How will you acknowledge intersecting experiences with oppression in your programming?
