Stelpur rokka! proudly present:Music Empowerment Mobility and Exchange, a European Rock Camp and Conference!
Stelpur rokka or Girl's Rock introduce the Music Empowerment Mobility Exchange (MEME), a collaborative European project which empowers youth to engage in music making and community building.
Supporting over 110 people active in music and music empowerment across ten countries, who will come together to learn instruments, form bands and exchange around community organising and storytelling through media making, MEME features a Planning Visit to Berlin in June, the MEME Youth Rock Camp Exchange in Berlin, Germany in July 2018 and a MEME Seminar and Network Exchange in Belgrade, Serbia in September 2018.
Backed by the Erasmus Plus programme and spanning seven months, MEME is led by Stelpur Rokka, Iceland in partnership with hosting organisations Ruby Tuesday e.V, Germany and OPA / Femix, Serbia and sending organisations Fundacja Pozytywnych Zmian, Poland; Girls Rock Dublin, Ireland; Girls Rock London, UK; Girls Rock! Finland, Finland; JM / LOUD, Norway; Pink Noise, Austria; Popkollo, Sweden and Stowarzyszenie Kobieca Transsmisja, Poland. All organisations come from the tradition of “girls rock camp”, music and arts based camps where girls, trans, and gender non-conforming youth learn an instrument, form a band, write an original song, and perform a concert at a live music venue and are members of the international Girls Rock Camp Alliance.

After successfully securing €110,000 from the Erasmus Plus Youth programme of the European Union, having scored 90/100 in its bid, this new and ambitious collaboration will promote gender equality and combat discrimination through an intersectional, anti-discrimination approach to empowerment through music and creativity.
