Hear artists involved in Europe Beyond Access reflect on how they are defying norms and breaking down barriers with their uncompromising approaches

Europe Beyond Access is the world’s largest transnational arts and disability programme

The British Council is the lead partner of a consortium of seven organisations in Europe Beyond Access. The project is co-financed by the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission. 

The core partners are: British Council (UK and Poland); Onassis Stegi (Greece); Holland Dance Festival (The Netherlands); Kampnagel (Germany); Per.Art (Serbia); Skånes Dansteater (Sweden) and Oriente Occidente (Italy). 

Europe Beyond Access supports disabled artists to break the glass ceilings of the contemporary theatre and dance sectors to: 

  • internationalise their artistic innovations and their careers  
  • develop a network of leading mainstream organisations with a commitment to present and commission at the highest level 
  • build European audiences interested in high-quality innovative work by Europe’s disabled artists 
  • develop tools and understanding in the wider performing arts market.
