A concert for autism awareness will take place at the capital’s Bangladesh Army Stadium on September 28. The concert is being organised jointly by PFDA-Vocational Training Centre (PFDA-VTC), Bangladesh Musical Bands Association (BAMBA), the Ministry of Social Welfare and SkyTracker Limited.

A total of 12 popular bands of Bangladesh will perform at the concert. The participating bands are Miles, Warfaze, Souls, Dalchut, Feedback, Shironamhin, Maqsood O’ Dhaka, Powersurge, Nemesis, Vikings, Arbovirus and Dreek.

On the occasion of upcoming concert, a press conference was held on Sunday at the Tawfiq Aziz Khan Seminar Hall of The Daily Star Bhaban.

Chairman of PFDA-Vocational Training Center Trust Sajida Rahman Danny, BAMBA president Hamin Ahmed, its general secretary Sheikh Monirul Islam Tipu and SkyTracker’s chief executive officer Doza Alan, along with the members of BAMBA’s executive board, were present at the press conference.

Sajida Rahman Danny said, “Autism is a complex disorder with a wide spectrum. At the moment, it is a pressing issue worldwide. It is a great pride for us that our government is doing an amazing job for the support and development of the autism community. Each individual with autism is unique. Many of those on the autism spectrum have exceptional abilities that need nurturing. We want to spread the message that autism is nothing to be ashamed of. Our heartfelt gratitude to the Ministry of Social Welfare, BAMBA and everyone involved for supporting us.”

Hamin Ahmed said, “BAMBA has always been vocal about social issues, be it helping disaster victims or raising voice for a cause. Throughout the 30 years of BAMBA’s existence, we have arranged many concerts as an effort to not only provides entertainment but also to spread social awareness messages. Unfortunately, autistic people often face isolation and discrimination in our society. With this concert, we hope to make an impact and change the social situation. We want to increase the acceptance, respect and support for them.”
