Baluji Music Foundation
In 2018, the Baluji Music Foundation received a grant of £5,000. The Baluji Music Foundation facilitates participation in music making for blind and vision impaired people. It provides workshops and performance opportunities and supports blind musicians developing a career in music. Through music and performance, the organisation seeks to promote positive attitudes to visual impairment and disability. The charity was established in 2008 by prominent blind Indian musician Baluji Shrivastav OBE together with musician and writer Linda Shanson.
The Inner Vision Orchestra, the UK’s only blind orchestra, has performed in venues across London and is promoting accessibility to music for more blind and visually impaired musicians, giving them confidence through workshops and performances.
