We’re always looking for gigs for our artists as well we do our own parties and open airs in the summer. Handicapped-art-works is working together with my other project called w.a.c.h. recordings & productions. Means I got my own semi-professional studio at home, making my own beats and lyrics and everything. For our members of handicapped-art-works e.v. w.a.c.h-studio always works for free or offers something special depending on what the artist wants and needs.
