Girls can, do and will

with Girlguiding London and South East England

Over 200 Girl Guides aged 10-14 will come together at the Barbican for a day of making noise and music, led by Jessie Maryon Davies, co-founder of Girls Rock London and musical director of LIPS Choir.

Harnessing the transformative power of singing, lyric writing, percussion and chanting, the day will include a series of performances and skills-building workshops that celebrate exploring new things, expressing oneself and making mistakes. The day will give the girls a space to use their voice and – to quote the Girls’ Attitudes Survey which inspired this event – ‘stand up for themselves and others’ in song.

A specially commissioned Barbican & Girlguiding London and South East England badge by visual artist and design educator Soofiya will be given to all participants at the end of the day to celebrate their involvement.
