How can we facilitate the access of people with special needs to the world of opera and dance ‐ or to the world of music and the arts? How can one work with people with different disabilities? What are the challenges? And even more importantly: what do we stand to win? What approaches and formats exist? How can modern technology help these projects?
These were the questions on our minds at the beginning of the RESEO Conference “Opera, Dance and Disability”, which took place from 31 March ‐ 3 April 2010 in cooperation with the Casa da Música in Porto (PO). 64 participants from 15 countries attended the conference, which was interpreted simultaneously into French and English.
