How do you know you’re being inclusive? We’ve created an acronym and visual to make it easier to remember the key principles of equality, diversity and inclusion in music. You can see a larger version and more information here, as part of our Alliance for a Musically Inclusive England (AMIE) inclusion resource hub.

Drake Music are currently running a series of webinars about inclusion from a disability perspective. You can find out about this and other training from AMIE founders in the training section of our inclusion resource hub.
