In this episode, the founder of Shine Music, Shawn Satterfield, and I discuss our mutual love for music, the reasons behind our drive for inclusion, and acceptance.
Shine Music Festival uses impressive technology to allow humans of all abilities to connect with music by taking what we hear from music into a form of feeling. Over 15% percent of the world’s population attends live music events making it nearly impossible to meet the ADA compliance standards. Even then, they only accommodate those with mobility issues. Shine Music decided to change that, and I couldn’t be more proud that this is happening in my hometown of Denver, CO. When you boil us all down to simple syrup, we love music, we love Love, we love Community, and we want to understand each other. Teamwork is the only way to experience our goals by bringing what we all have to create a beautiful world full of inclusion and acceptance. And through this type of ground-breaking work, my daughter can grow up in an environment where people don’t just see her chair but where she has access to experience this bold, beautiful world at all times.
On August 8th, Shine Music debuts a festival for people of all abilities, and it’s FREE! Sign-up here for your free reservation and find our full interview anywhere you plug into podcasts.
@LittleWinsSneak Peek: EP 10, “Let’s Get to Know Shawn Satterfield and the Shine Music Festival”. In episode 10 of The LittleWins Podcast, our @littlewinslexis chats with fellow music lover and advocate Shawn Satterfield about inclusion and the Shine Music Festival. Shawn reflects on how her personal history lead her to create Shine Music and Shine Music Festival. This pioneering music festival caters to people of all abilities with a sensory bus, Braille t-shirts, vibrating floors, a neurodiverse area, and other inventive accommodations. First of its kind, the Shine Music Festival holds a special place in Lexis’s heart. Not only does it take place in Lexis’s hometown, but it also allows her to share her love of music more fully with her four children. Since her daughter Ava has Cerebral Palsy and uses a wheelchair for mobility, this event affords her the same experiences as her siblings. The family is looking forward to making the kind of memories that will last a lifetime!
This free festival takes place on August 8, 2021, in Denver, CO, at Levitt Pavillion (doors open at noon).
