La Sardina de la Inclusión celebrates 15 editions with a virtual format

La Laguna celebrates the Sardine of Inclusion, a day to make disability visible

Music and Carnival, the perfect therapy for the integration of people with disabilities, which the Sardine of Inclusion intends, has grown to reach 15 editions. This year, under the slogan "Don't let a pandemic stop us!", it will take place in a virtual format and full of surprises. 

The Sardine of Inclusion started in a Special Education Centre in the north of Tenerife, where the benefits of music are used to work with students who present different pathologies, appreciating an important evolution in their quality of life. The multidisciplinary workshops are complemented with music therapy, up to the point of taking to the streets to show the work. What better date than Carnival? The evolution has been enormous. Last year people came from all parts of Tenerife and other islands with the change to La Laguna as the setting. It is always celebrated on the Wednesday following the Sardine of Santa Cruz. On February 24th, the XV Sardine of Inclusion will be faithful to its appointment. 

The pandemic has shown up many deficiencies for people with reduced mobility; difficulties in nursing homes; isolation of deaf people with masks, and so on.

The usual march through La Laguna, which in 2020 gathered some 8,000 people shortly before the declaration of the state of alarm, isn't possible, but the pandemic will not stop the celebration of the XV edition of La Sardina de la Inclusión (Sardine of Inclusion). 

The social and educational reality of the global pandemic changes the structure of the event, "but not the hope," say the organisers. Online development will be a key part of this event that includes poster and photography contests. Also in virtual format, and, as a novelty, is a batukada contest where social distancing will not silence the sound of the drums. Participate on social networks and on the website www.sardinadelainclusion.com.

Protest Song

Another novelty is a collective protest-song, where each group, centre, collective or murga that wants to participate can do so. The theme is the difficulties encountered by people with disabilities on a daily basis with a tribute to disabled athletes. Bambones, Diablos Locos, Zeta Zetas, Mamelucos and Marchilongas have confirmed their presence in the project.
