Developed through consultation with a broad range of composers and organisations, Sound and Music’s Fair Access Principles are designed to act as a code of best practice for running successful, open and inclusive artist development programmes, competitions and awards for composers.
In signing up, Drake Music Scotland are committing to enact the Fair Access Principles across their work over the next two years. We recognise that organisations will need time to think about and implement changes within their programmes.
You can read their reasons for signing up and future commitments the organisation have made below.
Drake Music Scotland’s Statement
“At Drake Music Scotland, we are firmly behind the idea of a more diverse range of composers having equality of opportunity and access to artistic development opportunities, competitions and awards. We work with disabled composers and music creators through our own programme and with other organisations in mainstream music, to remove the barriers, challenge perceptions, enable these new voices to be heard and their artistic ideas come to fruition.”
– Thursa Anderson, Chief Executive of Drake Music Scotland
