In August 2019, the Icelandic rock camp organization Stelpur rokka! will host a week-long Youth Rock Camp Exchange in Iceland, supporting over 110 people active in music empowerment across ten countries, to come together, learn instruments, form bands, and exchange around community organizing and media making.
This week, Stelpur rokka! welcome over 20 people from the 12 collaborating MEME Vol. 2 organizations to do some planning and organizing for the rock camp. The planning visit ends with the Friday night launch event. Come and listen to some amazing artists connected to Stelpur rokka!, meet rock camp organizers from all over Europe, and support our young people!
