Paraorchestra has been working alongside a number of partners to develop a set of Inclusive Principles to support the UK arts & cultural sector reopen, specifically to ensure disabled artists, audiences, participants and employees do not face discrimination as the industry gets back on its feet. (You can read the full press release here).
This document has been created to remind cultural organisations of their legal duties to support equalities, whilst offering examples of best practice and links to existing resources. The Principles have been designed to be applicable UK wide.

This work has been driven by a consortium of organisations with specialist knowledge in this field who shared our concerns about the risk of unintended discrimination and has included consultation with a range of creative disabled practitioners. The launch consortium comprises: #WeShallNotBeRemoved, Attitude is Everything, Ramps on the Moon and Paraorchestra, coordinated by What Next?
