The resource was developed following a workshop We Are Unlimited ran on developing an Access Rider, featuring alumni from the organisation and facilitators Leah Clements and Alice Hattrick.

We Are Unlimited explained how the document could be useful in their press release:

“Access can be a tricky subject, and sometimes it’s awkward trying to let people know your needs in a working relationship.

“With an access rider it’s an easy way to communicate your needs with fellow artists, organisations, or employers. From this event, we’ve created a new resource. It’s designed to answer some of the questions you may have about what an access rider is and how to make one.

“In the document, you will find some prompts and an example of one type of access doc, to get you thinking about how to structure your own.”

You can download the document from We Are Unlimited’s website.
