Still Loading has been organized by Di Techno, an all ladies agency that creates art and music experiences. The event organizer is Melissa DiVietri, Tedx Closing Speaker for Detroit. You can watch her video on disability awareness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-VyaFg54r
Still Loading’s vision was created to provide an accessible event for individuals with limited mobility to pursue new ways for an inclusive, welcoming event. We have designed the park space to have medium to large art installations, LED wall, and two live stages with techno + deep house, tech house, and house music curated by the agency, DI TECHNO. We will include an ADA platform for elevation and viewing for any individual with limitations of mobility, vision. This is an 18+ event, with no alcohol on site; however two food trucks & coffee vending provided by Great Lakes Coffee. The event has two stages for music, LED wall, and activations of the art installations created by local talent. We are self-funded artists working towards creating this inclusive event that eliminates barriers for individuals who demonstrate accessibility differences; such as our founder Melissa; with a permanent condition of a physical disability, a rare disease called ‘sacral agenesis.’ We’ve developed ways for unique individuals to have an open minded opportunity at the open air art festival with art installations that embrace their differences.
