Disability: Is the Future of Music Accessible?

Mar 18, 2022

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Whilst COVID-19 has forced us all to isolate, stay inside and resort to being in front of screens more than ever before, it has also presented us with a unique opportunity to use this technology to improve access and inclusion in the music industry for people with disability worldwide. This panel will showcase Disabled and Deaf musicians and Access consultants. These panelists will discuss the barriers that musicians with disability face in the music industry, the ways venues, labels and festivals can improve accessibility and representation for Disabled artists and audiences, and what COVID has taught us in how we can make our online content more accessible for everyone. Also, several of the speakers on this session will paricipate in a special SXSW Showcase from 7pm to 11 pm on Sat, March 19 at St. David's Bethel Hall.
