Who are the team behind Hack Sounds?
We have a shared passion for bringing about change in the way that adult leisure programs are done, both in “mainstream” and disability programs. Why are they separate? Why not bring everyone together? Collaboration works better together right?
There’s no direct correlation between disability, and your capability to learn new skills and create great art, especially when you have great collaborators. It’s with this basic premise that Hack Sounds was formed, and it continues to be our driving force, by providing opportunities for ALL people to be able to learn the basics of music making, and support to then take it further.
Inclusion can be hard. We know we don’t have all the answers, and will have to adapt to the needs of our members, but that’s kind of the point. The point is to keep looking, to keep trying new things, new approaches. In a perfect world, we’d achieve Universal Design, that grail of all grails, but for now we’ll continue to be imperfect, and have tons of fun while we’re at it.
