Embedding inclusion and accessibility within your music venue/organisation

If you run a music venue, or organisation, or run music events and/or activities, we want to support you to develop your capacity and resource to become more inclusive and accessible.

This 3-part series of events looks at different ways of embedding inclusion and approaches to physical accessibility within your music venue and/or wider organisation, and hopefully provide ideas of things that you could implement with the support of the grant.

Tees Valley based music venues and music organisations can attend the events free of charge to become eligible to apply for a grant of up to £2000 from Musinc to develop your organisation’s approaches and strategies around Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

The grant is available to Tees Valley based venues and organisations only, however anyone is welcome to attend the sessions. The grant is provided for anything that relates to developing your approach to inclusion and accessibility. It could be physical adaptations to your venue, organisational procedures and/or simply some capacity and resource to give this subject the necessary time and consideration that it needs.
