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, Ensemble Matters 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.
Ensemble Matters’ Statement
“We enjoy working with different creators and we believe a diversity of voices keeps us fresh. Over the years we have seen an increasing effort in the industry to make access fairer to creators.
Naturally, when the Fair Access Principles came out, we thought it perfectly sums up what we have been aiming for. We look forward to working with Sound and Music to the best we can and are excited be part of this common effort in making a meaningful change.”
– Owen Ho, Artistic Director of Ensemble Matters
