Music charity Attitude Is Everything has been awarded £998,000 from Arts Council England over the next four years.

The 20% increase in funding has been awarded in order for the organisation to create a new development programme for deaf and disabled artists and promoters. That programme is due to kick off in April next year. In addition to this, the charity will continue to provide resources, training and consultancy to the live music industry for improving access for deaf and disabled music fans.

“In these times of increasing competition for funding in arts and culture, I am delighted that the Arts Council England has recognised the importance of our influence in improving access to the live music over the past seventeen years”, says Attitude Is Everything CEO Suzanne Bull. “Their commitment ensures that we can further raise our profile; ensuring that we can support even more music venues, festivals and events to meet the requirements of disabled and deaf people”.

“I am also excited that we can now support disabled artists and promoters to develop under our new development programme”, she continues. “I look forward to sharing our new strategic plan in the future and supporting Arts Council England to deliver their vision of great art and culture for everyone”.
