The Culture Bar

Disability and Access in the Arts

March 28, 2022

In this episode of The Culture Bar podcast, we cover the important topic of disability and access in the arts. We discuss what does inclusivity really mean, how do we move EDI statements/​policies into meaningful action, the dangers of​‘tokenism’, and guests share inspiring examples of projects where disability and access to the arts were successfully implemented.

We are joined by three expert panellists from across the arts sector:

  • Kimberley Harvey – Director of Youth Dance Programme, Candoco Dance Company 
  • Kira Grunenberg  Arts professional and music journalist based in New York
  • Dougie Scarfe – CEO, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

Hosted by HP’s Henry Southern

This episode is part of our ​Under the Spotlight’ podcast series where we shine a light on ​challenging’ topics in the arts, and focus on guests living these experiences and who are working to create change in the sector.

The Culture Bar is a podcast series created by HarrisonParrott focussing on conversations in culture and the arts.
