A Letter to Our Potential Partners:
We envision a fully inclusive world that guarantees access and a sense of belonging for all people. 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.
Inclusion Festival began as the nation’s first and only sensory-friendly music and wellness festival, designed to accommodate and include people of all abilities. Believing the concepts of inclusion are fundamental to all experiences and communities, the festival has since grown to promote inclusion as a state of mind through the creation of an online magazine, training programs, and sensory-friendly accommodations and modifications at events and in community settings throughout the tri-state areas of NY, NJ, and PA.
Due to the global pandemic, Inclusion Festival 2020 was re-imagined as “Inclusion Festival ONLINE.” The three-day event debuted August 21-23, 2020 featuring best practices in virtual accessibility, including closed captioning, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, web accessibility tools, social stories, movement workshops, and more. We successfully translated our in-person programming to an online format with accessible music, visual arts, workshops, conversations, movement, and other forms of accessible recreation. We plan to continue to produce weekly online content along with two more virtual festivals in Winter 2021 and Summer 2021 that showcase and celebrate accessibility and inclusion. Should it be possible to safely transition to an in-person format, we will integrate all we have learned from our successful online presentations to deliver an accessible experience to those who choose to engage remotely or in-person.
Our virtual events will be presented free of charge, with donations encouraged to support the growth of our non-profit organization, Accessible Festivals. Accessible Festivals believes that music and recreation can and should be accessible to all people. Our work unites, informs, and empowers communities to create welcoming, inclusive environments with a focus on music and other recreational experiences.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will join us in this worthwhile journey to foster universal inclusion and recreational accessibility by supporting our Inclusion Festival initiatives. All contributions to Inclusion Festival are fully tax-deductible. We appreciate any support you can provide!
