Discwoman NZ Panel Discussions + DJ Workshops Announced

Discwoman NZ Panel Discussions + DJ Workshops Announced

Thursday 18th April, 2019 2:27PM

A special pair of free panel discussions and DJ workshops are taking place in Auckland and Wellington this May, in conjunction with two Aotearoa shows featuring Umfang and Shyboi of New York-based collective, booking agency, and event platform Discwoman. Organised by the team of local artists Aw B and k2k of Wellington's Moments collective, the panel discussions will feature Discwoman founding members Frankie Decaiza Hutchinson, Christine McCharen-Tran, Emma Burgess-Olson and Shyboi in conversation with local moderators. A crucial voice in the international world of electronic music, Discwoman came together in 2014 as a platform for women and non-binary artists and have curated events across the globe, with the goal of highlighting and correcting the gender imbalance in club and festival lineups.

The panel discussions will be followed by free DJ workshops presented by Umfang covering the basics of CDJs, ideal for beginners keen to get started with DJing. The organisers note "we’d like to prioritise women, transgender and non-binary people for these workshops and there is a very strict capacity". Signups for the workshops (first in first served) are required via momentsnz.com – BYO your own USB stick with cool tunes. Check out the info on the Discwoman's upcoming events here...
