Throughout the program, DJ L’Oqenz engaged several industry professionals as guest artist mentors to share their insight as well as assist in class facilitation. With the help of the artist mentors, the class explored and developed three key areas: The business of DJing, equipment maintenance, and new technologies. With the culmination of the Intermediate DJ Master Class Program, the graduated youth have found employment and requested more mentorship from UforChange. We are excited to continue the program as it is an excellent opportunity for our alumni to prepare them for the industry they want to enter and with our help, thrive!
With the support of the Toronto Arts Council, UforChange was able to offer an advanced DJ program. This program allowed ten DJ alumni to develop the business and artistic skills they need to begin their career over the duration of ten weeks. The Intermediate DJ Master Class was being lead by DJ L’Oqenz who is a prominent Toronto female DJ and has been apart of the UforChange family since 2008. She understands that mentorship is a key component to the development and enrichment of the lives of young people.
