Building Noisemakers: Rhythm for the Revolution

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

When we have the tools to explore our sensory landscape and experiment with materials, we open up the possibilities of creating instruments and sounds that are personally and collectively liberating. In this session, we will explore the building blocks of making sound/noise as a mode of sensory stimulation, self-regulation, self-expression and political disruption. Kids with all relationships to their sensory environment and physical ability are welcome.
