About this survey

Next Stage is an innovative artist development project, built on Attitude Is Everything’s success to date pioneering change in the music industry for Deaf and disabled people.

Funded by Arts Council England, the Next Stage project aims to break open the conversation around artists with impairments and health conditions, shedding off assumptions and championing talent. 

We want to discover and learn from artists with access requirements across the UK, developing a network of performers and connecting them with showcasing and networking opportunities.

Working alongside artists, we want to support the music industry to develop inclusive spaces for performing live, recording, networking and pursuing a musical career, whatever that might entail.

That brings us to the Next Stage Artist Survey...

This survey gives you the chance to share your music with Attitude is Everything, request to join our new Artist Mailing List, and share your experiences of:
  • Rehearsing
  • Recording
  • Playing live
  • Seeking support and funding
  • Attending industry events
  • Talking about your lived experience as a musician or artist
The findings of this survey will be collated confidentially and shared anonymously at The Great Escape in May 2019.

If you require this survey in an alternative format, or have any questions about the survey, please contact Rich via rich@attitudeiseverything.org.uk or 020 7383 7979.

Easy-read resources will be released in early 2019. Please let us know if you'd like these.
