Recently, during the Autism Awareness Month, Usha and Sanjay Shah, a Dubai based couple hosted the Autism Rocks Festival. The fun filled event gave families the opportunity to have a great time. It featured American rappers Tyga and Florida. The goal of the event was to raise awareness about the condition as well as donations for research.
Autism Rocks aims to change people’s perception towards those that have the condition. It also aims to change how they are dealt with in society. Usha points out that the urge to make a difference was driven by a personal commitment. They wanted to do something for Nikhil, their autistic son and others like him.
Although there has been a lot of support for individuals with special needs, the couple felt the need to offer more exposure for such children. They wanted to support research into new ways to counter Autism and understand why people are affected by the condition. That was the basis for Autism Rocks. It was established in 2014 and incorporates both a live concert and charity.
So far, it has managed to raise more than £ 600,000. It has accomplished that by organizing concerts in London and Dubai featuring the likes of Drake, Michael Buble, Prince, and Lenny Kravitz. This year’s event featured Tyga and Florida. They have a young vibe, which is important in spreading the message to the youth. Apart from Music, the family event featured crazy golf, laser tag, bouncy castle, zip line, rodeo bull, horse rides, inflatable rides, face painting, and barbeque. It was held in collaboration with 117 Live.
