Providing access to contemporary dance education for people with disabilities
September 2016 – December 2018
People with and without disabilities dance as part of the European iDance programme, showing that we can all access culture through dance.
How can we boost access to culture for people with disabilities? Continuing its involvement in this area, which began three years ago with the Unlimited Access project, the OCC is striving to make the self-evident possible in creative partnership with the Holland Dance Festival (Netherlands), the Skånes Dansteater (Sweden), and the Stopgap Dance Company (UK). Determined to overcome the obstacles which people with disabilities face, the European iDance programme is staging educational dance workshops for mixed groups of people both with and without disabilities. The programme aims to bolster skills and to facilitate the development, transfer and implementation of innovative practices relating to the opening up of culture through dance. iDance, weallDance.
