Europe’s biggest Arts & Disability programme
As the British Council Arts explains, Europe Beyond Access is a “four-year pan-European project aimed at supporting disabled artists to break the glass ceilings of the contemporary theatre and dance sectors”.
It is Europe’s biggest Arts & Disability programme, supporting and promoting artists with disabilities on the international stage, gathering audiences for their work, and creating a network of leading mainstream institutions that are committed to commissioning and presenting work by artists with disabilities.
Its target groups are artists with disabilities, such as choreographers, dancers, interdisciplinary artists, etc., audiences with disabilities, arts professionals with disabilities, culture organizations and institutions, all other interested individuals and stakeholders.
Europe Beyond Access is helping artists with disabilities to confront the normative gaze, to create social change through their artistic work, and to make a political statement by taking up space.
