Welcome to episode 19 of the Wonder Junkie Podcast ft Paul Hawkins from the charity Attitude Is Everything.
Delighted to have Paul on the podcast, he is the festival project manager for Attitude Is Everything and as a disabled person himself gave some really great insights into the issues around disability and access.
If you haven't heard of Attitude Is Everything before, they improve Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music by working in partnership with audiences, artists, and the music industry.
They support the music industry to understand Deaf and disabled people’s access requirements at music venues and festivals by building equality into the strategic process using a Charter of Best Practice. The ethos of the Charter is that Deaf and disabled people should be as independent as they want to be at live music events and over 100 venues and festivals have already signed up.
