Girls Rock Camp Alliance

Girls Rock Camps help girls build self-esteem and find their voices through unique programming that combines music education and performance, empowerment and social justice workshops, positive role models, and collaboration and leadership skill building. The GRCA supports camps around the globe in this mission.


Welcome to Making Art in/with Communities, a practice-driven course exploring the relationships between collective art-making and civic engagement. As part of this course you will read about and research current community art practices and create short projects that engage with the Charlottesville community. This website will host many of the readings, resources, and examples that we will be looking at throughout the course. This is a living document — we will be adding and shifting information as the semester progresses. For the most up-to-date logistical information, check the schedule page every sunday night. We are looking forward to working with you this semester!
