Time to Act: Two Years On
Two years on from the groundbreaking Time to Act report, British Council has commissioned On the Move, the international cultural mobility network, to conduct a follow-up report looking further into the knowledge gaps in the cultural sector that contribute towards inequalities for disabled artists and audiences. This new report published in 2023 reveals data-led insights into the accessibility, inclusion, international mobility and professional development of disabled artists in the European performing arts sector, as well as the progress made over the past few years.
The Executive Summary of the report is available in English, French, International Sign, Italian, Polish and Spanish. The English summary is also available as an audio version.
Time to Act: How lack of knowledge in the cultural sector creates barriers for disabled artists and audiences
How many programmers are actively seeking work by disabled artists? Do cultural venues have adequate engagement strategies to reach disabled people in their communities? These are some of the questions that the Time to Act report has posed in order to assess the knowledge (and lack of knowledge) amongst performing arts managers across Europe. This study from 2021 by On the Move into the barriers that disabled people experience when accessing the arts spans 40 countries. It was commissioned by the British Council through Europe Beyond Access.
