From 4 to 7 May 2018, international experts and artists met at Akademie Remscheid to exchange best practices, knowledge and ideas.
Our summits bring together selected international experts of the inclusive cultural sector and budding artists with and without disabilities from various genres.

Being at the European forefront of innovative inclusive practice, we consider international exchange essential to identify and overcome barriers and to further push equality in the performing arts.

At our summits, experts present good practice examples to be analysed by participating artists to gain a picture of existing accessibility practices in the arts.

Participants include Candoco Dance Company, Claire CunninghamShare Music & Performing ArtsOriente Occidente FestivalNCA Small TheatrePanthea.

The findings and knowledge gained from this international exchange feed into our masterclassesin-house workshops and performances and add the latest creative inclusive approaches in the performing arts.

The Faculty of Rehabilitation Sciences of TU Dortmund University and the Institute for Translation Studies and Specialised Communications of Hildesheim University monitor and evaluate our international summits.

The summits are part of the ImPArt project.
