Meeting Place is an inclusive learning space and critical platform to discuss and debate the latest in arts and disability. After coorganizing the last years Meeting Place in Berlin, Berlinklusion was invited by Arts Access Australia to participate at this years conference held in Alice Springs in September. We participated in panel discussions, presented participatory installation “Many things melt in the desert vol.1” and gave a workshop on inclusive art education. The travel to Australia was made possible through kindsupport by Goethe Institut and German Embassy in Camberra.
Workshop: ‘Under-Stories Revealed’ at Interventionen – Diversity in Arts and Education Conference and Festival
After an introduction to Berlinklusion, Berlin’s new network for accessibility in arts and culture, participants worked with artists with and without disabilities in a practical creative workshop that draws from the history and physical fabric of Podewil and its surrounds. The workshop concluded with a discussion exploring the existing structures within the cultural field, their limitations and impact on in/exclusion and their hidden possibilities for accessibility.
