The Edmonton Rock Music Festival is produced by The Rock and Roll Society of Edmonton. The Society operates the Centre for Arts and Music…..

With a focus on youth at risk in our community, the CAM Program reaches out to children who would otherwise have few opportunities to participate in the arts. The goal is to reach them during critical after school hours through music.

At CAM, children learn how to write songs, play instruments and perform together on stage. In the process, they earn self- esteem, respect for themselves and others, and much needed self-confidence. Like in years’ past, a number of the program participants will be taking to the Festival stage on Saturday, Aug. 19 to play some kick-ass classic rock for the Fest faithful

Studies show that children who are exposed to the arts do better in school and other areas of life. We see this first hand every day, and all agencies confirm the positive impact the program is having in the lives of these children. In fact, one agency advised that serious incidents at their centre dropped from several per month to zero as a result of student engagement in CAM.
