New York-based collective Discwoman and Berlin-based event organisers Creamcake have organised a DJing workshop and after-party at Berlin’s OHM on August 13.
In keeping with the transatlantic project’s mission statement —”collaborating to empower women and LGBT in electronic music” —the free event includes an intensive two-hour workshop to learn how to use CDJ 2000. No experience in music production is required, participants need only register at firstname.lastname@example.org and bring a USB key with their favourite music.
The workshop, running 7pm to 9pm on the Saturday will be followed by a live DJ set and after party, also at OHM, featuring DJ Haram, Bearcat, HD, Ziúr and Yanling.
Together, woman-run events organisation Creamcake and interdisciplinary cultural agency Niche Berlin, along with online platform concerned with “female spatial practitioners”, Making Spaces, come together to present “new perspectives, freeing up space and presenting their discoveries in Berlin.”
