About this event

IAMM Accessible Instrument Challenge Showcase image

Music is a universal language – or at least it should be. But what if having a physical disability makes it difficult – or impossible – for someone to learn and play a musical instrument?

Over the past 12 weeks, eight virtual teams have come together to address just some of the challenges experienced by people who want to play or produce music, but find it physically challenging to do so.

Combining their expertise in digital innovation and design technology, musical instrument making and lived experience of disability, the teams have looked in detail at their respective challenges. Our aim is to make adaptive musical instruments more affordable, make music education in schools more inclusive and uncover new solutions that haven't been tried before.

Where do we go from here?

Please join us online for this showcase event to meet the teams, hear about their ideas and progress to date and help us define where we go from here when it comes to making music accessible and inclusive for all.
