Inclusion in live music: the glossary that respects diversity is now online

By 29 January 2024No Comments

Together with Revelland, we celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities!

To mark this occasion, we decided to publish “Inclusion in live music. The right words to build it” on 3 December. This is an interactive glossary, developed by us at BAM!, with the supervision of KeepON Live and all the Revelland project partners, to help anyone who wants to find a more correct, non-offensive and inclusive way of talking about disability, so that sensitive and caring language can become part of more and more people’s daily lives.

The document, in English, spoken as part of the European project, can be consulted in the form of an e-book. It contains a glossary and a “thesaurus”, which lists terms deemed incorrect and offensive and proposes alternatives.

Revelland is a network that brings together various European organisations working to develop new ways of enjoying live music performances, with the objective of making them more engaging and more accessible to a wider audience.

Language can be one of the barriers that prevent many audiences from accessing live music – and cultural content in general – and this project has set out to break it down through the contribution of professionals and people working in the field of inclusion.

As an expert communication company, BAM! is supporting the team, particularly the Italian partner KeepOn LIVE, in charge of the work package related to project communication and publicity, in developing the digital strategy and managing the project’s online communication channels. Find out more!
