The first multiplier workshop

Great interest in the collaboration of art and disability in Hungary

We held an intensive and active workshop on a niche topic on September 2. in Orfű/Hungary at the Natúra Pension and Apartment House. We talked about the collaboration of ARTISTS AND PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES with participants from both sides. More than thirty people were curious about the topic. Exceeding the expectations of the organizing Hungarian team, participants came from all over the country.

Following the opening ceremony of Zita Füziné Kajdy, mayor of Orfű, we heard informative lectures from university teachers of three universities in Hungary: Pécs, Budapest and Szekszárd about accessibility.

Then the Hungarian projectpartner, People First Association presented the international ARTcoWORKers project, which aims to stimulate the relationship between the artistic / creative world and people with disabilities.

It was very important for us to hear the ideas and opinions of those working in the creative industry and people with disabilities about the opportunities for cooperation, so we had world-changing discussions at small group roundtables (World Café) and an evening garden party.

Creativity could not be lacking in the workshop, we even played a shadow play with the lights on the phones.

Very good ideas, many new and expectedly fruitful acquaintances were born in Orfű on this day.

Soon, we will continue with the piloting of the ARTcoWORKers training, and an international small group online collaboration. We will crown all this next March in Pécs with an ARTcoWORKers international final conference!
