Abstract

Attitude is Everything improves deaf and disabled people’s access to live music by working in partnership with audiences, artists and the music industry to implement a Charter of Best Practice across the UK. The Charter is a bespoke service offered exclusively to the live music industry and the award is in three stages, bronze, silver and gold. Each stage details the criteria for improvements and advises on how to achieve them. Over 210 venues and festivals have signed up to the Charter of Best Practice, adopting it as an industry standard for accessibility at live music events and agreeing to be mystery-shopped by a team of deaf and disabled volunteers.
