2011 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Chaska will facilitate a DJ skills course for queer youth and teens of color. The class will teach young people the technical skills of DJing infused with the transformative cultural, social, historical, and political aspects of DJing, music, and community space-building. The goal of the project is to allow the students to re-imagine the role of the DJ beyond playing music, but such as their involvement in building community and sparking creative, critical dialogue through movement and sound.
