An inclusive event

Inclusion matters to us. We consider the label «Kultur inklusiv» we were awarded last year by the department «Kultur inklusiv» of Pro Infirmis a noble obligation. We ensure that people with disabilities can partake in the festival by putting in place practical proposals and measures that will aid them. This is made possible by the generous funding of the «Denk an mich» Foundation. Here is an overview of the different measures.

For visually-impaired

Tactile models

Besides concerts and the music performance «Peaches Christ Superstar» on the lakeside stage, the audio play «Aleppo. Portrait of Absence» by Mohammad Al Attar and our initiative «Listen in!» are very suitable for people with a visual impairment.
