Proposals for a greater cultural engagement of disabled people in Europe
‘Disabled artists in the mainstream: a new cultural agenda for Europe’ emerges from the first European Arts & Disability Cluster meeting in The Hague on 30 November 2019, hosted by two of the core partners of Europe Beyond Access, British Council and Holland Dance Festival.
The cluster represents the first time that EU arts & disability projects have gathered in order to shape policy and cultural change.
The report includes six proposals which emphasis the urgency for and the huge benefits that would come from a European cultural programme that actively seeks applications that support greater cultural engagement of disabled people. It covers how to improve funding structures and design budgets that don’t discourage arts organisations from working with disabled artists, and how to ensure that theatres, venues and arts projects are actively welcoming more diverse visitors.
