Aspiring DJs take note!

On the 13, 14 and 15 November, we are partnering with Swedish clothing brand Axel Arigato to support a series of DJ workshops, THE ACADEMY BERLIN, from their store in Mitte.

From 7 until 10PM each evening, budding performers will be treated first to a session on organising your music, honing your selection and preparing yourself for gigs (hosted by Dangermami), before enjoying a hands-on session at the decks with Melis.

While workshops take place in evenings after the store is closed, there will be an open session on the Friday (17 November), when participants will have a chance to play a 30 minute set to those in the store in a party setting.

Participants will also be invited to book further open sessions at the Refuge Worldwide Weserstraße studio, and will receive a custom, limited-edition Axel Arigato x Refuge Worldwide USB stick.

As with all our educational programs, priority will be given to those with refugee backgrounds, BIPoC, people from the LGBTQIA community, disabled people, women and gender nonconforming people, or anyone else who feels that due to their background, they face difficulties accessing music education.
