Soundsphere magazine today releases a short documentary produced by two Hull College students – athlete, journalist and wheelchair user, Chelsea Sparke, and producer Danielle Hayes. The documentary features prominent figures in Hull’s music scene talking about Hull’s quest for better accessibility.
Dom Smith, editor of Soundsphere (who has Cerebral Palsy) comments: “Hull is where I am from, and I wouldn’t be doing anything music related if it weren’t for the supportive nature of Hull’s people and venues, but there’s still work to be done and this short documentary shows that and also sheds a light on the incredible stuff going on in our city, and scene.”
