Music is a universal language that speaks to everyone regardless of learning disability. Burley Inclusive draws on the experience and talent of music promoters, music teachers, DJs and recording
artists on its staff to run in-depth music projects that go beyond the usual. Our service users explore their creativity through songwriting and self expression, and develop their confidence by
playing to live audiences. Through gigs and radio broadcasts, our service users act as ambassadors for their demographic, offering their peers an inspiring view of members within the LD community as
successful musicians, and encouraging them to realise and achieve their own ambitions.
Twice a year the Portishead Youth Centre broadcasts a week-long radio show, in which students from schools and youth organisations create and manage the output. Burley Inclusive contributes its
own 1-hour long programme to the schedule, offering those students the opportunity to interact with learning disabled adults in an atypical context.
The radio shows typically take place in the Easter and October half terms, and are broadcast in analogue on 106.9 FM and digitally online at Radio Dynamic. Further details and links will be posted
on this this page closer to the date.
In the meantime, here's the highlights of last October's show.
