International Summits

Our summits bring together selected international experts of the inclusive cultural sector and budding artists with and without disabilities from various genres.

We are confident that cultural diversity makes art more interesting, innovative and meaningful.

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 the Candoco Dance Company, Claire Cunningham, Share Music & Performing Arts, Oriente Occidente Festival, NTN Small Theatre, Panthea, Graeae, Drake Music and Jonathan Meth.

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

The Institute for Applied Theatre Studies of the Justus Liebig University, Giessen and the Institute for Translation Studies and Specialised Communications of Hildesheim University monitor and evaluate our international summits.

The summits are part of the project ImPArt.
