In the workshop titled " Inclusion and disability on stage: how to integrate it in a cultural organisation?", she explored the benefits of including disabled individuals in professional artistic productions, both for the individuals involved and for society as a whole.
Drawing on her background in community-based performing arts projects, Elisabeth provided practical insights into how to develop inclusive productions that challenge and inspire audiences. The workshop showcased examples of successful collaborations between disabled and able-bodied performers and technicians, including the SPOR project, a large-scale visual performance developed in collaboration between young people with disabilities and the Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra.
If you too would like to learn more about the importance of inclusive practices and how to develop strategies for incorporating disabled individuals into live performances, you can check out her intervention and get inspired.
