Paid opportunity: Access Focus Groups

Live to your Living Room  Paid opportunity: Access Focus Groups

Here at Live to your Living Room, we would really like to improve the service we give to Disabled, Neurodivergent, and chronically ill people, or people who face other barriers to attending live music events.

In order to do this, we are hoping to speak to people who identify as facing barriers to accessing live music events in any way, to find out what is important to YOU, and what you think we should be looking at and prioritising. Our plan is to run a series of focus groups, to help us understand the needs of the community.


About the focus groups

The focus groups will be run on Zoom, so you can join in from wherever you are. You will be in a group with up to 15 other participants, depending on how many people would like to take part. We’ll be there to help guide the discussion, which will focus on the barriers to accessibility and how they might be overcome. You will be free to contribute in whatever way works best for you. The session will last no longer than 90 minutes. 


Payment for your time

Thanks to Folk Arts Oxford and Arts Council England, we have some funding to pay for this consultation, as we particularly recognise that Disabled people are often asked to give their time and labour for free when advising on access issues. Participants will be paid £50 for taking part in the focus group.
