Disability & Live Music Research

We are currently working on an important piece of research looking at Disability & Live Music in the North East. And we need your help!

Our partners Attitude is Everything are well versed in the situation facing many deaf & disabled music fans across the nation, however they are shining a light on the situation in the North East, an area rich in culture but a bit skint when it comes to research.

The North East music scene is a complex and wonderful thing so we want to hear from as many different people as we can about the issues facing deaf & disabled music fans in the region. We’re interested in lots of different aspects of the industry from bedroom fans to boardroom CEOs, DJs to drum techs – what’s great about the North East music scene, and what’s not so great? What barriers are in place and where would you like to see change?

There are three main ways you can take part – and you can do all of them if you like!
