We love to hear from our community! This week, learn about one of our supporters, Katee Meckeler and what Accessible Festivals means to her. Below she shares a bit about herself and why music is so important to her.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m a person who finds great interest in the environment and how our world works. I like to educate and get people excited about our planet. I enjoy meeting new people, learning from them, and experiencing new cultures. Traveling is very important to me. I also love to cook, move my body, and see live music with friends!
What does Accessible Festivals mean to you?
Accessible Festivals to me means fostering a space where everyone feels comfortable, safe, and can have fun. It’s about coming together to experience the beauty and power of music in a place where you can simply be you.
Why is music important to you?
Music allows me to have spiritual moments with myself and then also with others. It starts conversations, tells stories, creates friendships, and inspires artists. It helps me feel comfortable in my own skin and break free of judgement or bad feelings. Music is vibrating magic that is so healing, grounding, and makes me smile from head to toe!
