With the slogan “Music for everyone”, Social Inclusion Band is a sub-project within the scope of Dreams Academy. As a performing band, Social Inclusion Band has the starting point of view that Music is a universal language that has always brought people together in every society and culture throughout the history.

The band aims to gain active and equal participation in the society for disadvantaged young people who suffer from various physical and/or social handicaps, through volunteering musicians and talented disadvantaged people. The band is formed by people trained at Dreams Academy , accompanied by volunteering professional musicians. So, with a mutual interaction it offers a great opportunity for self-expression for disadvantaged people. It  aims that the participants have a different view to life, earn and be supported for their professional life and their self improvement as prolific individuals.

Every disadvantaged young person within Social Inclusion Band can have free training given by volunteering professional musicians, music therapists and educators and earn money as artists.

Social Inclusion Band not only affects the lives of participants positively but also raises awareness about the issue of disability.

It also adopts the idea of abolishing negative prejudices in society about disability, by means of art and media, based on the success stories of the young disadvantaged people.

With an open invitation, social Inclusion Band calls every sensitive artist to be a part of this change.

Formed in 2010, Until now the band has performed at many important venues like Vodafone Freezone music festivals, Efes Pilsen One Love Festival, Traditional Bebek Festival, İstanbul Jazz Festival, Rock’n Coke, Akbank Jazz Festival  and shared  the stage with professional musicians such as Moby, Limp Bizkit, Simon Bolivar Orkestrası, Şebnem Ferah, Bengü, Babazula, Cahit Berkay, Deniz Güngör, Kürşat Başar, Burçin Büke, Selen Servi and Güntaç, also had the opportunity to make music with many of them.
