VAMS - What is VAMS? Sweetness to the ear! Vancouver Adapted Music Society

I just participated in ConnecTra Society's Okanagan Virtual Roadshow - where Vancouver's Adapted Music Society (VAMS) presented it's documentary - The Strong Sessions. They featured a quote that was tremendous ~ "Disability is not a barrier to creativity". I think this documentary demonstrates inclusion, creativity, beauty, barrier free accessibility and more. The documentary introduces you to VAMS, cofounded in 1988 by Sam Sullivan ( former Mayor of Vancouver) and Dave Symington. The documentary shares with you VAMS roots and their artists, and showcases how the group meets and jams and creates in a heritage building that is clearly accessible. There studio was featured; welcomes in bright sunlight and has open spaces that offer energy for the singers, songwriters, musicians, and editors. I hope you have a chance to stop with your bowl of popcorn or your favourite munchie and check out The Strong Sessions!

Their website features bios on the artists; check it out and enjoy!
