Public meeting with Ben Evans, Director of Arts and Disability for Europe of British Council

For years the British Council has been promoting the work of artists with disabilities worldwide, such as the increasingly important Candoco Dance Company. It also supports cultural institutions in sharing reflections and initiatives to make the performing arts accessible to audiences with disabilities, as well as to approach every spectator to the world of disability beyond pietistic stereotypes.
Ben Evans, with his charisma, will tell us about the British Council’s actions in this field and the current state of the reltionship between dance and disability in Italy and Europe.
