Improving access to creativity and culture

Here at the Arts Council England, we’re committed to achieving greater fairness, access and opportunity across the creative and cultural sector.

That’s why we’re developing a scheme dedicated to improving access for disabled, D/deaf and neurodivergent audience members.

Today we’re sharing details about how the proposed scheme could support existing access provision.

Our ambition is that the scheme will include a digital membership scheme for audience members and venues, training and best-practice standards for venues, and more.

To ensure the scheme addresses all the needs of audience members, we’re being guided by an Advisory Group of disabled, D/deaf and neurodivergent members. We’re also asking for feedback from audiences, venues and ticketing providers at every stage.
