Opera North’s Fair Access Commitments

Share this page

We’re delighted that Opera North joined us as partners in signing up to our Fair Access Principles in February 2020.

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, Opera North 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.

Opera North’s Statement

“Opera North supports the Fair Access Principles because accessibility and reaching artists from the broadest range of backgrounds and experiences is central to our Resonance artist development scheme and other opportunities. We are delighted to work with Sound and Music and other partners to keep developing our approach over the long term.

– Jo Nockels, Project Manager at Opera North
