United Inclusion Publication


How can arts and cultural funding effectively promote the artistic activity and participation of cultural workers and audiences with disabilities? From March 2021 to December 2022, Un-Label addressed this question through the participatory project United Inclusion, which was realized in two project phases. The result of the project is a guideline for cultural funders that enables their representatives to take a structured approach to the realization of their goals for inclusivity.

In the first phase of the project (2021), cultural workers with disabilities, alongside representatives from funding organizations of the federal government, the states, municipalities and private foundations, formulated their needs and developed concrete ideas for the implementation of an equitably designed cultural funding structure. These relate both to the re-accentuation of funding procedures and to the development and transfer of knowledge. The project results are available for download in german free of charge.

The basis for United Inclusion was the report “Disabled artists in the mainstream: a new cultural agenda for Europe”, which the network “European Disability Arts Cluster” produced in March 2020 with the aim of re-accentuating the activities of the future EU cultural programs with a view towards actors and cultural participants with disabilities. Within the framework of United Inclusion, the report was translated into German and is available for download free of charge:
