We have taken the first steps to get DMLab North started, with a one-off Innovation Challenge in Manchester this summer, which resulted in some really cool instruments being made.

With your votes we can win £10,000 from the Aviva Community Fund, which will mean DMLab North can continue and grow.

We think it’s a pretty good idea, but don’t just take our word for it… here’s Hannah, who took part in the Innovation Challenge in Manchester:

What is DMLab?

It’s our Research & Development programme, whereby disabled children and adults co-create bespoke instruments with volunteer technologists, coders and makers.

The creation of new instruments is led by the disabled musician, in direct response to their musical and access requirements.

We’ve had some fantastic successes with our work in the South – like John Kelly’s accessible guitar the “Kellycaster” – and we’d like to do the same in the North.
