We’re proud to have signed up to the Fair Access Principles with Sound and Music, alongside other organisations from across the UK, in an effort to make artist development programmes more open and inclusive for all composers.
Sound and Music’s Fair Access Principles aim to address long-standing and systemic issues in composer development programmes, and to open up a positive public conversation about how the music sector can work together to identify and take steps to remove barriers to inclusion.
Rydym ni’n hapus iawn i fod wedi cytuno i fynychu Fair Access Principles gyda Sound and Music, ynghyd â sefydliadau o amgylch y DU, mewn ymdrech i wneud rhaglenni datblygu artistiaid yn fwy agored a chynhwysol i bob cyfansoddwyr.
Mae Fair Access Principles gan Sound and Music yn bwriadu mynd i’r afael â materion systematig a hirsefydlog o fewn rhaglenni datblygu cyfansoddwyr, ac i ddechrau sgwrs gyhoeddus gadarnhaol am sut mae’r sector gerddorol yn medru gweithio gyda’i gilydd i adnabod cymryd camau i dorri’r rhwystrau i gynhwysiant o fewn y diwydiant.
"Through applying the Fair Access principles, we've removed barriers and received many more applications as a result."
"We make sure our panels are representative, and are clear about that in our opportunities for artists."
"Offering fees and covering costs for access makes all the difference to artists."
"Possibly the most challenging - but also the most impactful - element of the principles is Flexibility. This has really changed the way we build our programmes."
