Bandmates Victoria


Bandmates is a program that matches volunteers with people over 18 with disability or mental health issues, to go out to live music. Often people with disability and/or mental health issues are unable to attend live music unless they are with parents or support workers. This project creates solid foundations that facilitate social access, build community connections and enhance wellbeing through accessing popular and independent arts and culture.
