Looking for more info on the workshops? Here are INTERVENTION's FAQs.
I'm nervous and I haven't DJ'd before, not even on rekordbox, will I be able to come along?
Absolutely, our sessions are for beginners and those with experience!
I'm a cishet white man, can I come?
At INTERVENTION we prioritize marginalised people but have always welcomed those with societal privileges because solidarity and understanding across all lines is what we hope the future will look like. If you need the space, you're welcome to join but be mindful of the place you may be taking from someone else.
I have access needs, who can I speak to about it?
We try to use accessible spaces for different physical needs for all our workshops but sometimes this isn't possible. There are quite a few of us in the team with complex needs so we're always trying to be mindful of how others interact with different spaces and how to accommodate everyone. Please email us at info [at] interventionworkshops.co.uk and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
