Cross-UK arts access scheme for disabled
The UK’s four arts councils have joined together to create a new access scheme for disabled, D/deaf and neuro-divergent arts audiences.
All In is a partnership between the arts councils of England, Northern Ireland and Wales and Creative Scotland with a new web site going live today, based on the work of Wales’s successful Hynt scheme for theatres and arts centres.
Creative and cultural organisations can be kept informed about developments by visiting the site which features a support directory for organisations to find accessibility consultants, freelancers, and organisations from around the UK.
“Back in 2014 I witnessed the success of Hynt first hand as director of the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama venues, making the lives of our disabled audiences and our box office staff so much easier” said Andrew Miller, UK arts access champion for All In. “Now I want All In to fundamentally improve the experience of D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people attending arts and cultural events across the UK through barrier removal, making it easier to book tickets and to offer consistency.”
