When the government fails to adequately support modes of independence for people with disabilities, community is there to foster possibilities and imagine potential! Through a long term crowdfunding campaign Mira Canta, Mira fundraised to purchase a custom-built and tailored Canta car. Such a community investment for Mira made possible various forms of physical and psychological freedom in her personal and professional life. All donors were given two tickets to a concert at Podium Mozaïek in Amsterdam as a special thanks. The guests heard songs from Mira’s first EP Festina Lente, which was created specifically for the donors.
