Turntables in the Camps is a project focused on the inclusion of young Palestinian refugees in the global youth culture of DJ-ing and the creation of electronic music.

To facilitate this the project conducts workshops and sets up permanent local dj schools for refugee boys and girls in order to show that everybody can be a DJ or an MC no matter where they are from.

Turntables in the Camps was made to spread the means for musical creativity, break down boundaries and to creating a window to the world for marginalized refugee youth.

Builded on the experience of the pilot project, Martin F. Jakobsen, raised money through the Danish Center for Culture and Development in order to establish three permanent dj schools in Lebanon and Jordan and conduct DJ and rap workshops for Palestinian refugee youth. The second part of the project was initiated in September 2010 in cooperation with the Danish artists Den Sorte Skole, Ladybox and MC Tia, the Palestinian Rappers TNT and MC Sam. On the programme was two weeks of workshops for more than 100 Palestinian girls and boys aged 13 – 20, and the establishment of DJ schools in Beirut, Nahr el Bared near Tripoli, and the Jabal el-Hussein Camp in Amman driven by local NGOs and volunteers.
