We are happy that we are invited to be part of the Panel Session „The majority is different“ in the frame of the IETM plenary meeting.

World-class disabled artists do not create work in a vacuum; organisations which provide excellent accessibility for disabled audiences and professionals do not achieve this by accident. Producers, programmers, funders and artists all contribute to the cultural ecosystem. How, in Germany, can they move forward from theory to tangible change, and how does this compare with elsewhere in Europe?
This session will look at the context for creating truly inclusive, accessible, and excellent cultural practice, using a number of German examples to explore the theme.

IETM – International network for contemporary performing arts – is a network of over 450 performing arts organisations and individual members working in the contemporary performing arts worldwide: theatre, dance, circus, interdisciplinary live art forms, new media.

Their members include festivals, companies, producers, theatres, research and resource centers, universities and institutional bodies. They hold two plenary meetings a year in different European cities, and smaller meetings all over the world. Besides, they commission publications and research projects, facilitate communication and distribution of information, and advocate for the value of performing arts.
