International Symposia

Our international symposia offer a platform promoting exchange between artists and cultural, scientific and political operators. This fruitful exchange creates a European network that initiates and drives innovative cooperation.

Artists with unique experiences and perspectives create new, unique forms of art.

Discussions include tried-and-tested diversity approaches and methods as well as political and social issues from different European countries.
To this day, accessibility remains the number one barrier people with disabilities face when equally participating in cultural activities.

What can cultural institutions and operators do to welcome inclusive culture concepts? How can such concepts be well designed, tested and implemented on a European level?

The cultural sector holds unique potential to establish successful inclusive participation. It is important to harness this tremendous potential to nudge society towards new ways of thinking.
