Europe Beyond Access

Led by the British Council, Europe Beyond Access is a four-year cooperation project supporting disabled artists to break the glass ceilings of the contemporary theatre and dance sectors. It aims to support disabled artists as they internationalise their artistic work and careers, but also to build knowledge among cultural managers and programmers.

As part of the project, On the Move has been commissioned by the British Council to produce two reports aimed at identifying barriers to the international mobility of disabled artists, to programming disabled artists in Europe, and to making venues and events accessible for audiences. Based on an open survey and a series of interviews with cultural networks and EBA project partners, these two publications will look at the state of current knowledge concerning disabled artists, disabled audiences, and access provision.

Please note that the report Time to Act: Two Years On will be available online after the official launch.
