Get Equipped is an initiative to bring DJ’s and Production equipment manufacturers into an ongoing charitable donation scheme.
Surplus kit is donated to educational and community organisations or projects, that support young people in crisis, in the UK and beyond.
We take DJ and Music production equipment from manufacturers, clubs, DJs or anyone! We then link up with organisations and projects who will then use the equipment to help transform the lives of young people.
We have already seen the impact this can have over the last year when we provided a range of equipment to a Angel’s Gate a children’s’ home in Tanzania.
We also aim to provide education and support to the organisations to ensure longevity in the work they do and ensure their staff or volunteers have the ability to teach the young people the key skills in both DJing and music production.
The equipment we require can be old stock, end of line or simply no longer needed all we ask that it is in working order and usable.
This can be mixers, decks, midi controllers, drum machines, synths, computers or DAWs, software, samples and music (copyright free of course).
One set of decks, speakers and music or a computer with software and samples is enough to teach at least 10 young people to learn how to DJ or produce music.
We have collaborated with the Abode foundation to develop 2 music schools in Uganda and Tanzania and aim to inspire many others to join in to help establish many more working schools.
For manufacturer’s donating equipment can be done in a tax efficient way and this is explained in the tax break document as seen at the end of this document created with the help of specialist accountants.
Get Equipment will be formally launching at this years BMC Brighton Music Conference, to get involved please get in touch.
Together we can all change lives through the power of music
