KW Junk Music
Are you looking for a fun, engaging musical activity for your community? Want an interesting way of talking about sustainability?
Look no further! KW Junk Music engages communities to create music out of instruments made out of material diverted from landfills and recycling plants.
Our mandate is two-fold:
- We want to make music accessible to everyone.
By creating instruments out of found objects, music becomes available to all regardless of age, ability, or skill. The idea behind this movement is to breakdown the norms of what instruments should look like and encourage people to explore the creative musical potential of everything in their lives.
- We want to challenge people to think about their sustainable practices.
Why do we have so much junk that we can make instruments out of it? It really boils down to this question. We encourage participants to think about ways to upcycle material typically labelled ‘junk’ and how we can reduce the amount of waste we produce in the first place. The ultimate goal is to eliminate junk entire. Yup, I’m trying to work myself out of a job!
We offer customizable workshops and events for your community. Whether it is a junk music jam, a hands-on musical workshop with a sustainability discussion, or a song writing session, we bring everything needed to run the event. Just sit back, relax, and participate!
Potential Programs Include:
- Junk Music Jams + Instrument Building Station
- Circle Games with Junk Instruments + Sustainability Discussion
