After a successful launch in 2016, the Belfast Festival of Learning returns for a second year in 2017. The festival takes place between 20th-26th March, with events happening across greater Belfast, with an aim to encourage the participation of groups and individuals who have experienced barriers in accessing learning opportunities.  We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting two very special DJ workshops in conjunction with The Black Box and BEAMA, on Friday 24th March. The first workshop takes place from 11am-1pm and is aimed at adults with disabilities. The second takes place from 2pm-4pm and is aimed at young people aged 16-24, categorised as NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training).

Both workshops will give participants the opportunity to get hands on experience of club DJing. Giga Training’s tutors will show each participant how to choose music, use the equipment and perform a DJ set. They will also provide advice on how to kick-start a career in DJing and how to access further training in Northern Ireland.

All equipment will be provided, including full DJ set ups and sound system, plus all the music required to make your own live DJ mix. 

Places for the workshops are limited so registration is essential. You can book your place for the programmes using the links below.
