'Respect' DJ workshops deliver Djing and music recording based programmes, primarily in Youth Clubs, Schools and Community groups. Workshops can be tailored to suit the organisation's requirements and budget, whether it’s a 6 week introduction and exploration session or a 6 month intensive development workshop.
Rayees Rashid (DJ Rice) is a qualified Youth Worker and accomplished DJ, providing workshops across the North East of England since 2004. Previous projects have been coordinated for the private and public sector, including local authorities such as Redcar & Cleveland, North Yorkshire & Middlesbrough.
The main aim for the workshops is to provide young people access to creative art within an informal environment. Benefits include young people meeting new friends, gaining self confidence, learning new skills (respect, communication, artistic, self expression, creativity, participation & teamwork). By breaking down barriers through art, young people are making a positive contribution within their communities and not engaging in anti-social or offending behaviour.
The workshops also ensure that young people have access to a range of positive & constructive activities and this can assist to promote inclusion and engagement with groups that are uncomfortable with written or discussion work. The objective on completion of the workshops is for young people to learn new skills through informal education and change social attitudes and values towards art.
Note: Workshops are most successful in small groups (maximum 10-12 people)
