2023 To The Front Tāmaki Makaurau

SAE Creative Media Institute hosted Girls Rock! Aotearoa’s 2023 To the Front event at the SAE Auckland campus in January.

To The Front is a week-long event that offers a series of music-related workshops culminating in a public gig at The Tuning Fork. There were over 40 participants this year with a range of mentors supporting them. Guests artists including Georgia Lines and DJ Half.queen visited to inspire the upcoming generation of creatives.

Girls Rock! Aotearoa has been inspiring women, trans, takatāpui intersex, and gender-diverse youth form bands, build instrument skills and write original songs since 2018. Campus Director Dr. Suzette Major says SAE is committed to changing the face of the music and audio industry and bringing more women and non-binary folk into what is currently an industry of gender disparity.
