We strive to create and support accessible music making communities

Disabled people/people with disabilities often encounter physical and social barriers to making music. These barriers include, but are not limited to instruments, spaces, and social environments. As a result, people with disabilities experience ableism—discrimination based on ability biases—and therefore do not have equal access to making music compared to nondisabled people. To address these access issues, the Canadian Accessible Musical Instruments Network (CAMIN) partners academic and non-academic members with expertise in disability, music, technology, education, and research.
