PROJECT OVERVIEW

Reimagine 2019

By working across borders, across cultures, and across disciplines, could we collectively REIMAGINE disability and create new narratives around identity, access, and inclusion?

The project centered around a creative re-imaginging of Shakespeare’s Richard III at Hamlet’s Kronborg Castle in Elsinore, Denmark – using the production as a platform to explore questions of identity, access and inclusion across cultures and continents.

the orange accessibility floor

The old medieval city of Elsinore is paved with cobblestone. The City is quite inaccessible to people with physical disabilities. With REIMAGINE 2019 we wanted to reimagine awareness about accessibility in a new colorful and creative way.

community
culture
co-creation

Through the REIMAGINE project we created new relationships with and between people working with arts and culture, science, and disability and built bridges across countries and cultures.

These relationships have created the foundations of a global community, where artists, activists, researchers and community leaders can potentially develop new platforms for exchange and co-creation,  locally and globally.

In addition, a variety of innovative solutions and collaborations continue to emerge from the Action Lab, one of many is to develop and implement a new platform for inclusion and equality using the principles of universal design.
