Opportunity: help improve access to music education for blind and partially sighted learners

Do you have experience in delivering Arts or education-related projects, and would you like to help improve access to music education? If so, please see the following message, from Jay Pocknell, Project Manager for Sound Without Sight and Music Support Officer at RNIB:

“I’m so excited to finally be able to share this! Arts Council England are funding RNIB to lead a short-term project between January and April 2024, which will consult with the music education and publishing sectors, to identify and develop strategies to improve the materials available to children and young people who require musical scores in alternative formats. I am delighted that sector experts The Amber Trust and DAISY Consortium area also partners in the project.

To support this work, we are looking for a Freelance Project Officer. Please read more and register your interest here: https://www.musicmark.org.uk/jobs/project-officer-accessible-formats-in-music-education/

We are also open to considering EOIs from organisations who are interested in providing this capacity.
