31: Chris Rosonina & Supporting Adults with Intellectual Disabilities
Chris Rosonina &
Supporting Adults with Intellectual Disabilities
WELCOME TO THE EDUPUNX PODCAST!
Chris Rosonina is a photographer, vinyl collector, and support staff for adults with intellectual disabilities (ID). In this episode, we question Chris about his work, how he supports folks with ID, and what it looks like to change career paths when you've found a different calling in life.
If you're in the Eastern Mass - Providence area, you've likely seen Chris at a gig taking pictures and rocking out - so we hope you get to learn more about him as a person, as a music lover, and as professional who works with a very misunderstood and stigmatized identity group.
Make sure to give Chris a follow on Instagram @__sea.roses__!
- In this episode, you got to hear tunes from the new Motel Art EP, "Continental Breakfast," which is a sick post-hardcore act from Haverhill, Mass. I just played a gig with them over the weekend and I really loved their style and performance and I'm excited to share their tunes with you!
- You get to hear the songs, "My Body" and "Better Off Leaving" during this episode and if you like what you hear, please check out the rest of their EP over at MotelArtband.bandcamp.com.
As always, you can CHECK OUT THE NEW SPOTIFY PLAYLIST!
- This week we hyped up Half Access - which is the nonprofit founded by our eighth guest, Cassie Wilson. Half Access was started with the purpose of amassing as much venue accessibility information as possible to inform venues across the country and the world about how to better construct and renovate spaces to accommodate the needs of disabled music goers.
- Visit HalfAccess.org/contact to reach out to Cassie and volunteer your time to supporting the cause of making music venues for inclusive and accessible so that our communities can truly thrive.
