Lauren Daigle has continued her partnership with KultureCity to create and renovate 17 sensory rooms at venue stops on her “The Kaleidoscope Tour,” including 15 new rooms.
Specifically designed by medical professionals, the renovated or refurbished spaces provide dedicated environments for individuals in need of a quieter and more secure environment from which to enjoy concert and sporting events. The rooms are scheduled to be completed by the time Daigle’s tour kicks off on Sept. 6.
Each sensory room will be outfitted with bean bags from Yogibo, visual light panels by Nanoleaf, activity panels, Sparkle Interactive Light by NunoErin, bubble walls and a custom tactile artwork created by an artist on the autism spectrum. In addition, sensory bags will be available at all tour stops for those who might need them.
“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,” shares Daigle. “These sensory rooms we’re creating with KultureCity, are all about giving everyone that experience. For me, that’s what touring is all about.
Daigle’s partnership with KultureCity began in 2021, when together they created the The Lauren Daigle Sensory Room at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The room was sponsored by Daigle’s own The Price Fund, as are all of the rooms being created for this effort. Since 2019, KultureCity has created over 1,900 sensory-inclusive venues in seven countries and has been recognized nationwide for using its resources to revolutionize and affect change in the community for those with sensory needs, not just those with autism.
“Music is something that we associate with and to know that Lauren and her team are going the extra mile to ensure that everyone, no matter their ability, is included at a concert is truly amazing,” says Uma Srivastava, Executive Director, KultureCity. “We’re honored to partner with Lauren to provide a truly inclusive experience for all fans and guests!”
“The Kaleidoscope Tour,” which kicks off on Sept. 6 in Memphis, Tennessee includes stops in Los Angeles, Newark, Boston, Atlanta, Seattle and Baton Rouge. Before its conclusion in the U.S., the tour will have seen 30 stops before heading overseas with Brandon Lake, Crowder, Josh Garrels and Victory Boyd appearing on select dates.
Daigle is set to release the remainder of her self-titled album on Sept. 8 via Atlantic Records, in partnership with Centricity Music.
