Continuing on from the partnership with the Young Urban Arts Foundation (YUAF), which was started in 2020, all masterclasses have now been completed.
A video recap has been produced to help promote YUAF courses, and encourage other artists to partner with them. You can take a look at this video here.
After our initial donation and consultancy work for the AZ Mag Creative Fund, an applicant has been selected and will begin her six month project in January 2021. You can read more about the AZ Mag x DJ Mag grantee here.
DJ Mag has begun to work alongside the chosen grantee who will be presenting the piece in May 2021, with cross platform support from DJ Mag.
We have begun talks with AZ Mag regarding new community support activations for 2021. Updates to follow.
Community support standards
In order to effectively support community projects, we have outlined criteria which will serve as standards to hold ourselves to and guidance to those who wish to apply:
DJ Mag will set a side portion of monthly inventory for pro-bono advertising across digital and print to projects that directly support Black, POC and/or LGBTQ+ communities
DJ Mag will take on four long term community support projects per year; one per quarter, and with at least two projects being UK based
DJ Mag community support projects must directly benefit Black, POC and/or LGBTQ+ communities and must not financially benefit individuals and/or third party groups
We have set up an email, [email protected], for anyone that would like to discuss working with us re: community support initiatives.
