When Lauren Daigle performed in Nashville in 2021, she teamed up with a company called KultureCity to create a special “sensory room,” where people in need of a quieter or more secure environment could watch the concert. Now she’s offering these “sensory rooms” at 17 stops on her upcoming The Kaleidoscope Tour.
The rooms, again created by KultureCity, are designed by medical professionals and will be outfitted with bean bags, visual light panels, interactive lights, bubble walls and “tactile artwork” created by an autistic artist. Each room is designed to provide a safe, calming environment for attendees who feel overwhelmed or overstimulated.
“The amazing thing about playing live is that feeling I get when I’m looking out from the stage seeing people connect to the music – and to each other,” Lauren says of the project. “These sensory rooms we’re creating with KultureCity are all about giving everyone that experience. For me, that’s what touring is all about.”
A KultureCity executive adds, “We’re honored to partner with Lauren to provide a truly inclusive experience for all fans and guests.”
