Regardless of our position in local or the international communities, many of us struggle with knowing when and how to intervene on situations that appear to be harmful. This workshop will be a practical guide to identifying and naming examples of harassment, discrimination, and assault; deconstructing the difficulties and concerns around intervention; and learning techniques to skillfully and safely intervene when you see something that you think is wrong. This workshop is for anyone who wants to be a positive force for change in their community, regardless of your position in the scene.

This is an open discussion where topics in the past have ranged from: DJing band breaks, what makes a song good for swing dancing, getting a scene to dance faster, and what equipment one uses and why. Join us and learn more about DJing from your fellow community members.
