Future Leaders is Drake Music’s programme to support and promote inclusive, accessible practice in music-making.

It aims to improve representation of young Disabled People in the workforce by:

Developing progression routes, new skills, and knowledge

Providing practical experiences

Exploring the variety of roles within the music sector, such as music leaders, project managers, facilitators and educators.

The Future Leaders role is for 4 Disabled musicians aged 18-25 who want to have a long-term, fulfilling musical career.

We want to ensure the music sector is vibrant and representative of us all and change is still needed. We welcome applications from people from underrepresented backgrounds and communities, the global majority, women, and LGBTQIA+. We aim to make our programme intersectionally inclusive.

The information is available in a variety of formats including Large Text, Easy Read, BSL, and audio.
