Connect to the conference

Talk about diversity in artistic and performative practices will involve artists and performer, for whom overcoming (physical features, social stereotypes, social taboos) is not an abstraction, but an everyday reality. They will talk about how they cope with physical and other difficulties, how they break down borders and stereotypes, how they reflect on the struggle for diversity in their art.

With English-Russian and Russian-English simultaneous interpretation as well as Russian sign language translation
