Behind the workshop is Deaf Rave an organisation that provides “entertainment with music, sign songs and visual performances to an all-inclusive audience, globally and across the UK” with an aim to unite people.
Founder, Troi ‘DJ Chinaman’ Lee began Deaf Rave as the first and only events organisation dedicated to providing the deaf and hard-of-hearing community a platform to display their love for music.
Deaf Rave has been working for nearly two decades to provide deaf dance fans to have engagement with music by using techniques such as feeling the reverberations of sounds from stage monitors so that they can experience raving.
They have headed up parties at fabric, Latitude Festival and Glastonbury.
