Music is for everyone, including people with mental disabilities. During the Unlimited Symposium, we talk to experts from the music and healthcare industry about how we can involve people with a disability in music associations. The enthusiastic Prof. Dr. Erik Scherder, professor of clinical neuropsychology and a popular guest on Dutch TV, will be telling the story of the importance of music for our brain and for our development in the afternoon at the Parkstad Limburg Theatre. Why is making music so good for you? And how does this work for people with a disability?
Afterwards, we will discuss with leading professionals from the care sector and from music how we can best involve people with a disability in bands and orchestras. Why is a connection between these sectors so important? And what platforms are needed for this? Panel members include those from Landelijk Kennisinstituut Cultuureducatie en Amateurkunst (LKCA), ArtEZ University of the Arts, Koninklijke Nederlandse Muziek Organisatie (KNMO), Philadelphia and the Jostiband.
