Future Female Sounds Opens DJ Academy For Female And Gender Minorities

Future Female Sounds (FFS), a nonprofit organization dedicated to making DJing more accessible to women, gender minorities and non-binary people, recently announced they are opening a new DJ Academy!

“After training nearly 500 new female, non-binary, and gender minority DJs in several countries across continents, our dream of building an Academy with an actual 3-month long educational graduating course is coming true,” says a statement on the organization’s website.

FFS opened the Academy in Copenhagen, Denmark with support from Tuborgfondet, which donated more than $270,300 towards the project. The curriculum includes DJ training, mentorships with music industry experts, public talks, livestreams and performances for students.

The Academy itself is free to attend for people who identify as female or non-binary with 20 percent of the admissions reserved for underprivileged youth in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen where the school is located.

“We’re very excited to have the opportunity to develop talent through the DJ Academy, where we will also be able to connect them directly to the music industry, to support their careers long-term.” – Tia Korpe, director and founder of Future Female Sounds
