Carousel's Projects on the web


Shut Up And Listen! is Carousel’s music-making initiative run by learning disabled artists.

Carousel supports DJs and musicians with a learning disability to create their own music and develop recording and performing skills.

We ensure that their music is widely listened through touring, and at our Blue Camel Club and Rock House.

What We Do

  • Electric Academy – a skills building project for building new learning disabled musicians and DJs
  • Create This! Music – an introductory music making course for young learning disabled people to try their hand at making music
  • Outreach in Schools – led by Carousel artists to promote music making amongst children attending special schools
  • The Rock House – a collaboration with The Rock House to support a website and a monthly night to promote learning disabled music.

Carousel is an award winning registered charity which has been working since 1982 to help people with a learning disability to reach their potential in the arts.
