Europe Beyond Access presents two online events
Europe Beyond Access presents two online events happening in May.
Online report launch: Time to Act: Two Years On
24 May, 10:30-12:30 CEST (Brussels)
Two years on from the ground-breaking Time to Act report, British Council has commissioned On the Move - the international cultural mobility network - to conduct a follow-up report looking further into the knowledge gaps in the cultural sector that contribute towards inequalities for disabled artists and audiences.
This new report reveals data-led insights into the accessibility, inclusion, international mobility and professional development of disabled artists in the European performing arts sector, as well as the progress made over the past few years. The report combines a regional focus, covering all the countries participating in the EU’s Creative Europe programme (as well as Switzerland the UK), with more detailed analyses of the progress made in three of the countries where Europe Beyond Access has operated – namely, Italy, Poland, and Sweden.
Europe Beyond Access symposium: ‘Disability and Transforming the Cultural Ecosystem’ live streamed from Brussels
26 May, 10:00-13:00 CEST (Brussels)
What is the current cultural landscape for European artists, arts professionals and audiences with disabilities in 2023? What recent advances have been made on a national and European basis?
How can all cultural professionals, arts organisations, national institutions and cultural policymakers play a part in transforming the cultural ecosystem in the years to come? These questions and more will be answered through contributions from Mariya Gabriel - European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth - and from European cultural networks, national Arts Councils & Ministries of Culture and leading disabled artists, including Demy Papathanasiou (GR) and Aristide Rontini (IT).
Attendance free of change upon registration.
