DJ Moyma on the Children's Ward at Heartlands Hospital
Our DJ sessions have started with the excellent DJ MOYMA
(www.moyma.co.uk). Young people on the Children's Ward at Heartlands
Hospital and from Naseby Centre and Hutton Hall have been learning about
hip hop culture, including its history as well as DJing and dancing,
and have had the chance to try mixing and scratching some records. This
is a really exciting new part of the project, and it's very popular with
the participants :) More and more people are turning up each week,
which is great! Sessions at Naseby Centre (5-6pm) and Hutton Hall
(6.30-7.30pm) are open to any person under 18.
