First Flight Crew hip hop performance - Sydney

Event date: 
3 December 2009

First Flight Crew are a seven piece hip hop outfit from Sydney performing original tracks with Aussie hip hop artist Morganics.

Formed in 2008 after a series of song creation workshops for musicians with disability, the First Flight Crew recently played their fifth gig at ‘Comedy is King’ at the Westin Hotel, Martin Place. This event was a major fundraiser night for Down Syndrome NSW and the Crew were invited to open the evening with break dancing and beat boxing.

The group will be performing next at Fairfield Museum & Gallery on 3 December as a part of International Day for People With Disability.

The First Flight Crew are supported by Accessible Arts Western Sydney. The Western Sydney project works to raise awareness and create opportunities in the arts for people with disabilities across 11 local councils including Auburn, Bankstown, Baulkham Hills, Blacktown, Blue Mountains, Fairfield, Hawkesbury, Holroyd, Liverpool, Parramatta and Penrith.

Accessible Arts Western Sydney have recently launched a blog site with information on their projects. It also includes resources around arts and disability, a listing of Western Sydney Arts Centres and a 'What's On' guide to events and opportunities in the region.
