Show Notes

Tune in as we are joined by Executive Director Amy Pinder and learn all about Accessible Festivals, a wonderful organization to work to make sure that all festers have what they need to be included and feel welcome to join in the fun.

Ticket grant programs, ensuring safe spaces, and providing sign language interpreters are just a few of the incredible initiatives this organization provides.  They even have their very own Inclusion Festival annually!  Be sure to check this one out as it is sure to raise your awareness.

Accessible Festivals Mission Statement
Our mission is to foster connection and understanding through the universal language of music, to provide a platform where people of all abilities and identities can connect and build relationships, and to inspire the creation of safe, inclusive, and equitable communities.
