We run and participate in a number of industry networks and groups.
Venues and events that join our Live Events Access Charter are invited to monthly calls to discuss issues, ask questions and connect with each other.
Just Ask promoters network
As part of our Next Stage initiative, we are building a network of promoters from across the UK who have attended a free Just Ask session based on our guide of the same name on asking artists about their access requirements.
Next Stage talent development group
Also part of our Next Stage initiative, this group brings together artist funders and talent development organisations to improve access to application processes and engagement work.
