Gideon Feldman, Head of Programs at Attitude is Everything, will explain how to influence the event industry to make live and music events accessible for deaf and hard of hearing visitors, as well as people with other forms of disability.
Attitude is Everything is a charity-led organization whose mission is to make cultural and popular events accessible for people with disabilities. Over the nineteen years of its existence, the charity has grown into Britain’s top influencer in the field of accessibility for people with disabilities within the music industry and other types of live outdoor events.
Using the experience of Attitude is Everything as a starting point, Gideon Feldman will speak about providing access to concerts and live events in the UK as the organization is looking ahead to its twentieth anniversary and will share the best practice examples from venues and festivals.
