Andrea Moore challenges us to re-think what “broken” means
Although they like to rock, The Wayfaring Band isn’t a rock-n-roll or a musical band at all. They are a band of travelers, exploring the world one badass road trip at a time. Most of the travelers in the band are young adults who experience cognitive and developmental differences including Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, genetic differences, and more. Neurotypical leadership fellows also join the trips as paying clients, not volunteers, and together these wayfarers hit the road as peers, chasing adventure and radically altering their own and others’ experience of difference along the way. Co-founder and Executive Director Andrea Moore speaks to the band’s core values, best practices, and memorable moments on their radical journey to reframe brokenness and celebrate otherness.
