  • Thanks for the heads up Jeff! Appreciated. :]

  • sounds superfun. i’m assuming this is open to entries from all over the world? there was nothing specified on the entry form.

    • We have a focus on local and Canadian talent, but since 2003 we have been showcasing a strong contingent of international artists. The last show had artists of varying disciplines from every corner of the planet. Apply now. Thanks Jeff!

Musician Anna Bulbrook (The Bulls, Airborne Toxic Event, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros) recently launched GIRLSCHOOL, a Los Angeles-based music festival and collective that celebrates female voices. A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.

Society6 has joined forces with GIRLSCHOOL to pair up musicians and artists to create visuals inspired by the music, to be displayed at the event. See a few more of the collaborations below!
