Balance Collective

A Collective For Under Represented DJs and Producers in the North East

Balance Collective is a community of Women, Trans and Non-Binary people, supporting new talent and re-distributing power within the industry

About the Collective

Balance Collective is a community of Women, Trans and Non-Binary people, learning the entry level skills to become DJs and producers. The collective will seek to support new talent, and re-distribute power within the industry.

Through the Balance Collective, we want to create pathways into the industry by providing a nurturing environment for people to learn, share and fail.

We are going to build a strong community and network of under represented DJs and producers within the North East.

The Balance Collective will be building an open database and directory of DJs and Producers of all levels; by signing up you will be invited to workshops, masterclasses and showcase opportunities, and have the option to have your details publicly displayed on our website to be booked by local promoters.

We will link our Balance Collective DJs and Producers to promoters and support you to grow your own confidence, networks and events.

Our workshops and masterclasses will be free to access but ring-fenced for Women, Trans and Non-Binary people.

Between June and July 2023 we will host an informal workshop series at Star and Shadow Cinema, offering a safe space for women, trans and non-binary people to learn the basics of DJing.

Our free two hour sessions will take place on Tuesday evenings with local female, trans and non-binary mentors sharing their knowledge and skills covering mixers, CDJs and Technics turntables.

These sessions will provide a nurturing environment for people to learn, share and fail, accumulating in a public showcase at the end of the workshop series.
