Pique joins forces with Cinetol for a series of Sunday afternoon dj workshops. In these cozy classes (12 people max.) we’re exploring a couple of themes: spinning with vinyl, dj’ing with USB, online cratedigging and streaming your set. The workshops consist of a talk with room for questions and a possibility to try some things out yourself. Gear (vinyl or USB) is not required.
During these classes we welcome women and non-binary people who experience misogyny* and who want to try DJing or already have a little experience and feel like amping up their skills.
* The experience of being ridiculed, excluded and judged on the basis of not conforming to female gender norms
Edition 1: Spinning Vinyl w/ Hellie Berry (New Date 18/04)
For the first edition Cinetol booker Josefien (Josie Pop) will have a conversation with Helena Naeff (Hellie Berry), who is an experienced vinyl dj. Helena has been a well known figure in the local dj scene for ten years now and has worked for all kinds of creative industries in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Utrecht and more. Throughout those years she has been advocating for the representation of women in the industry. That’s why she started a platform called ´Voortouw´, co-founded´ the dj agency Pique and hosts the radioshow ‘Women’ together with Naima Bouchtaoui in which they illustrate the lives of feminists in non-Western countries.
