“John’s session in particular raised awareness of the Social Model and thinking about/reflection around the right of disabled people to access a music education/opportunities.”

Sophie Gray, Inclusion Lead

About the training:

Explore the theory of the Social Model of Disability, learning from experienced Disabled trainers about what it means in practice.

The Social Model was developed by Disabled people and is a live,  radical and empowering concept. Inclusion London say:

“What is powerful and liberating about the Social Model is that it does reflect Disabled people’s real life experience, and puts forward a radical and practical approach to ending Disabled people’s exclusion and oppression that does not require Disabled people to change who they are in order to be deemed to be entitled to the same rights and opportunities as non-disabled people.”

During these sessions we will create a safe and friendly space for honest discussion and transformative learning.
