INTERNATIONAL ACTION ASSEMBLY

AUGUST 21 - 24 2019, ELSINORE

WHAT IS REIMAGINE 2019?

THE PLACE WHERE WE MEET AND RETHINK DISABILITY, INCLUSION AND ACCESSIBILITY

At the end of August, Elsinore is hosting a large, international gathering of researchers, activists, artists and citizens to explore new ways of thinking disability. The goal is to create action in the field through different activities: an Actionlab, a Knowledge Festival and a Theatre production!

ACTIONLAB

REIMAGINE Actionlab gathers a group of artists, activists, researchers and citizens from Denmark and abroad to participate in three days of workshops, discussions and dialogs, artistic performances and much more besides. The purpose is to REIMAGINE disability, inclusion and accessibility, and the goal is to develop concrete actions in the disability area, in the form of new co-operations and products.

KNOWLEDGE FESTIVAL

At REIMAGINE Knowledge Festival we invite the public to participate in exciting talks, poetry readings, performances, exhibitions and debates. Together, we will rethink disability, inclusion and accessibility.

THEATRE

The HamletScenen’s own production of Shakespeare’s RICHARD III raises questions of identity, stigma and diverse ways of being in the world. Among other things, the play intends to break with narratives that amplify the feeling of being different, excluded and stigmatized.

REIMAGINE BODIES

KADK X KRISTIAN SVERDRUP

REIMAGINE BODIES invites us to rethink our relationship to the body, and the spatial and social relations that it forms a part of.

The exhibition displays works from Kristian Sverdrup’s “Kunsteren som værk” (The artist as the piece) along with Master’s students from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture, Design and Conservation’s “Different Bodies”.

Common to all the displayed works is that they raise questions about normality and accessibility, without thinking about the body as being isolated from the relations they form a part of.

REIMAGINE BODIES is part of REIMAGINE 2019:

A large, international action assembly in Elsinore where citizens, researchers, activists and cultural personalities meet to find new ways in which to think about disability, accessibility and inclusion.

REIMAGINE BODIES is exhibited in Krudthuset at Kronborg Castle from August 1 – 23, 2019.

REIMAGINE NATURE

NATURE, HEALTH & DESIGN

REIMAGINE NATURE is an installation of a 360-degree film, made by the research group ’Nature, Health & Design’ at the University of Copenhagen. Using VR-googles, the film shows different settings in the University of Copenhagen’s therapy garden Nacadia.

Nature is an important resource to human health. As a group, people with disabilities have many health challenges, and therefoer nature is a particularly important health resource for them. Unfortunately, many people with mobility disabilities are involuntary ‘indoor-people’.

With this installation, we want to illuminate what nature experiences mean for all.

In addition to the VR-film, the installation convey different experiences of mobility loss (between the branches of two trees) and invite visitors to share what nature means to them.
