We hope that participation in this project would help us overcome the cultural isolation that the independent cultural scene in Serbia is suffering from due to the conservative cultural policy, lack of support for experimental, critical, interdisciplinary work, and neglect of vulnerable social groups in the public sector and society in general. We see partnership within Europe Beyond Access as a concrete action of the EU integration process, with a direct impact on disabled and non-disabled artists and audiences in Novi Sad.
Per.Art is an independent organisation in Novi Sad, Serbia. Since 1999, its programme “Art and Inclusion” gathers artists with and without learning disabilities, and culture professionals. The main idea of the programme is the production of artistic projects in which artists with learning disabilities take part as authors, co-authors and performers, with the aim to promote their work on an equal basis within the local and international contemporary performing arts scene.
