The learning and case-studies capturing over the In-Sight Weekender will be condensed into a new zine-based guide on how to make DIY and grassroots gigs and tours accessible and a UK-wide campaign to sign-up bands and artists to implement its recommendations in their practice. This guide will be designed to empower artists to affect meaningful change in partnership with grassroots venues, increase diversity on stage at their gigs, and reach new audiences.

The In-Sight Weekender is funded by PRS for Music Foundation and Arts Council England.
