RockCan is an Interchange Australia initiative. The intention of RockCan was to bring together a number of rock bands for the enjoyment of patrons, for young people with and without disabilities to showcase their musical talents.

RockCan it not just about attending a concert, it’s the participation, the involvement and the aura that comes with being part of setting up for a large music event. Interchange has made RockCan a learning experience. Over past events we have had participants involved in an array of activities from assisting the bands to set up their equipment, creating and recording songs and videos to assisting in the promotion of the event. The most recent project has been the creation of a documentary, “Road to Rockability” recording how the event comes together. The next phase of this evolution is to host bands from disability services organisations.

Interchange Australia has pulled together professional bands, audio engineers and cameramen, many who have given their time freely, to assist with participants wanting to gain an insight into a rock event.

With the success of RockCan, the enthusiasm and excitement that we have had from everyone involved, we would like RockCan to become an ongoing and regular event. To assist in this vision, we are constantly seeking sponsors to assist with many of the costs associated with organising RockCan.

On behalf of Interchange Australia, we would like to thank the bands who do provide their time to be a part of RockCan. These bands offer their time at no cost. There have also been a number of local businesses that have assisted greatly contributing their time and costs towards RockCan as well as Make a Difference (MAD) Community Grants Program who provided financial support. Thank you.
