IntegrART, a Migros Culture Percentage networking project, actively supports the inclusion of artists with a disability within art and society. Since 2007, the biennial initiative has been linking up local festivals, presenting national and international productions, and organising symposiums in cooperation with key partners.
Enabling artists with a disability to become part of the standard cultural scene is not just a question of representativity and social justice, it is also about artists with a disability bringing new forms and experiences to the arts. Their enriching contribution helps broaden the spectrum of possibilities; it is a plus for the producers as well as the audience. The general public is still not sufficiently aware of this, and even open-minded contemporaries often know little about it. That's why since 2007 IntegrART has been sending remarkable dance pieces by and with artists with a disability on tour and organising a conference with experts every other year.
