Platform is a new initiative that offers Disabled adults in Bristol an opportunity to get into music-making.

Delivered in partnership with Bristol Beacon, Platform participants are supported to explore creative music making using both traditional and non-traditional instruments. People will be invited to join in through a blend of online and face-to-face ensemble sessions.

Often the opportunities for Disabled adults to pursue creative music-making are limited. We want to ensure that everyone can make music if they want to, in a way that suits them.

Platform will begin with one-to-one online sessions then, when it is safe to do so, there will be a chance to take part in socially-distanced group sessions, either online or in person.

Working with our team of experienced Associate Musicians, Platform provides Disabled adults with the chance to:

  • explore their musical interests
  • create new compositions
  • collaborate with others, to create, rehearse and perform music

This project is delivered in partnership with Bristol Beacon.
