Music has a world-renowned role as a therapeutic medium, among many other and infinite advantages. However, with specific groups, such as people with disabilities and / or mental illness, the need to question their role as artists, enhancers, creators, and explorers is pointed out, not assuming Music only as therapy or occupation.
Music has no “stamps”. In Music there are no prejudices, there are no brands, there are simply people. So, music is an important weapon to build a more egalitarian society, where there is a real inclusion of these groups. We seek to undo the idea that it is necessary to have a special talent to make Music.
Participation in inclusive musical experiences, designed as collective musical experiences, provide a framework for:
- Self-expression through sound, music, and movement
- The development of social and interaction skills.
- The expression of feelings through musical experiences in a group situation.
- Empower people with disabilities and / or mental illness as objects and subjects of intervention.
- Strengthen social responses through innovative solutions.
- Change mindsets and destroy stereotypes associated with exclusion
- Develop artistic skills, with a view to social and professional integration.
