What Is A̶c̶c̶e̶s̶s̶i̶b̶l̶e̶ Acceptable Music Technology?
Hosted by National AccessArts Centre (NaAC)
The Sled Island Music & Arts Festival and Byta, the platform for sending digital audio files and streams, are proud to announce another in their series of free, online conversations about the changing landscape of music called Tête-à-Têtes. "What is A̶c̶c̶e̶s̶s̶i̶b̶l̶e̶ Acceptable Music Technology?" is presented in partnership with National accessArts Centre.
Join Stefana Fratila of CRIP RAVE Collective (Toronto) and Gift Tshuma & Charles Matthews of Blurring the Boundaries (Montreal) as they offer insights and perspectives on accessible music technology, musical environments, and music culture. Each panelist brings a unique perspective on accessibility within music and will expand on the importance of access-first approaches to instrument, infrastructure, and program design.
From blindspots in dominant norms in music to the need to move accessibility concerns away from last minute add-ons to foundational, practical and wonderful work-shaping considerations, a variety of accessibility concerns will be discussed.
ASL interpretation will be offered for this event.
