DJ for beginners. Workshop by Helena Ortiz / Pegao Skul

  • Friday 27 October, 17 to 20 h. Espacio para la Creación Joven (Llerena).
  • Just bring your computer! If you don’t have one, we’ll try to help you.

DJ for beginners is a workshop by the Pegao Skul collective, given by Helena Ortiz, in which you can learn the basics of becoming a DJ, from installing the necessary software to playing your first tracks, using the open source programme Mixxx.

The workshop uses a horizontal learning table format, divided into a presentation of the content, followed by a practical session. The tables are then opened, so that attendees can put into practice what they have learned with the advice of the facilitator and DJ, through a B2B exercise.

One of the main concerns of Pegao Skul, as a creative collective and as a club, has been to promote the gender perspective in the DJ world, encouraging the participation of a majority of women in the musical circuits in which they move professionally and the visibility of their work, generating line-ups, in the case of clubs, and workshops with a major female and LGTBQ+ presence.
