Throughout the week four representatives of Women's Beat League (Alyssa Beers, Felisha Ledesma, Daniela Karina Serna and Kathleen Hong) will provide a supportive environment for participants to learn the basics of DJing on CDJs and will lead discussions, music-sharing sessions and workshops on resistance through sound, personal histories, DIY organising, and gender in electronic music.
Participants selected for the retreat will also be invited to DJ with Women's Beat League at a special event at DIY Space for London, on Friday 9th June.
The Study Week will take place between 5th and 8th June 2017 at Wysing Arts Centre. Participants who decide to take part in the event at DIY Space for London are responsible for their own travel and accommodation.
Selected participants will be asked to bring a USB with songs for DJing (the more you can bring the better). These should be songs with a strong and identifiable beat, of varying tempos and styles which the participant is familiar with.
The deadline for applications has now closed. The successful applicants are: Phoebe Davies, Claire Hall, Madeline Hall, Johanna Hardt, Poppy Moroney, Annabel Other, and Sylvia Ugga.
