Inclusion Festival is thoughtfully designed to include and accommodate people of all ages and abilities.
Sensory-friendly environments are thoughtfully designed to help individuals experiencing sensory processing issues manage sensory stimuli so they can feel more comfortable, enjoy their surroundings, and successfully interact with others. Accommodations at Inclusion Festival include music played at a lower volume (30-40 decibels lower than standard shows), the absence of strobe lighting, a layout that reduces crowding, opportunities to engage in mindfulness activities, and quiet, peaceful places to take a calming break.
