CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
Best Practice Brochure of the inclusive performing arts
– A handbook of mixed-abled practitioners within Europe
Published by Un-Label
Co-Funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the EU and Aktion Mensch (Germany).
[DEADLINE: 1st of October 2016]
About the brochure content . . .
The goal is to feature reflections and observations within Europe and to share international perspectives by presenting best practice examples of merging inclusive demands and the performing arts in a professional context.
Performances which include performers with disabilities interact with a range of factors such as the politics of traditions, aesthetic norms or constraints, structural conditions, accessibility, communication and time. Un-Label is interested in collecting a vast range of practical examples, diverse experiences, international perspectives and new approaches of working with mixed abled artists in Europe.
The brochure is going to give an overview of current practice within inclusive performing arts and potential possible outcomes or ideal environments. The brochure aims to expand the understanding and the awareness about professional projects and performances with an inclusive context across different nations and cultures. Also it provides a guideline to encourage and support other cultural players in working inclusively and accessibly.
Who this call is addressed to . . .
We are looking for performing arts practitioners within Europe who have been following an inclusive concept and want to share their particular knowledge, observations, ideas and methods.
We welcome proposals from European projects, companies or institutions which have been working professionally within the performing arts disciplines. We aim to capture a range of practice and perspectives in the publication – a unique benefit of the publication.
Facts and figures . . .
Contributions to this themed brochure may be represented in a wide variety of formats to capture and reflect the extent and range of perspectives. We would also welcome dialogues, interviews and practitioner reflections with approximately 1000 words.
The brochure will be published as English print as well as English and German digital version. It will be released in April 2017 and promoted through our broad EU network, which includes partners such as British Council’s Disability Arts International platform, Creative Europe and the Cologne University of Applied Science.
