The project was co-financed by the European Social Fund through the Ministry of Culture of Republic of Slovenia.

 

With the close cooperation of major regional disability organisations and the Slovene National Theatre Nova Gorica, the Rotary Club Nova Gorica is conducting the »Stage for Everyone« project. The main project goal is to improve culture-related skills and knowledge of people with disabilites, thus improving their chances for eventual employment in the field of culture.

The most attractive aspect of the project is the preparation of a stage play; the play Waiting Room was written by the artistic teamof two actors and a dancer-  specially for this occasion, with contributions of all group members. The group, consisting of handicapped persons, deaf persons, blind and visually impaired persons, and persons with psycological conditions, represents a strong challenge for their mentors: various methods for including everybody into their roles are researched along the way, as well as ways to enable communication among people with different sensory deprivations.


The project is not important just because we try to help people with disabilities to improve their skills and their cultural life in a wider sense. Trough activities of dissemination we also alert and educate the general public as well as management of various cultural organisations on the problems of universal accessibility of culture.
