EASPD, alongside its partners in the ISA Project are in the process of selecting 16 promising inclusive art practices to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities through art. These best practices will be collated in a guide to be release later in the year that will hope to positively impact the professional practice of people engaged in communication and education through art and culture.
The best practices that have been submitted to the project for consideration demonstrate a variety of different art forms, ranging from audiovisual art to sculpture and from music to city festivals.
The adherence of these practices to the UN CRPD is an essential criterion in their selection for the project’s guide. In particular the project’s partners wish to promote practices that secure the implementation of Article 30 and contribute to the participation of people with disabilities. In addition these practices must also raise awareness amongst the general public of the rights, capabilities and contributions of persons with disabilities, helping to fulfil Article 8 of the UNCRPD.
The selected best practices will be announced shortly and the guide release later in 2018.
