Open Call

Invitation to disabled artists from Hamburg

Since a few months Kampnagel is in a cooperation that is planned for the coming three years, with DAN DAW CREATIVE PROJECTS (DDCP). This is the company around the British choreographer and performer Dan Daw. He is an internationally renowned artist who strongly shapes discourse and aesthetics between dance, disability and queerness. Dan and his team want to get to know Kampnagel from the inside with all its departments, its program, and ways of working. Together, we want to find out how our work can become more accessible, and shaped by mutual care. We will create artistic visions, learn from each other, and would like to do this work connected to the Hamburg art scene.

On Saturday, January 28, from 11am-5pm, Dan, Liz, Zed, Froud, Christopher, Nao, and Sarah will be at Kampnagel. They will introduce themselves to you, and create a day of conversations in smaller groups. Topics include: relationships with institutions, solidarity work between disabled artists, and supportive collaboration between non-disabled and disabled artists.

If you are interested in these topics, live in Hamburg, work artistically in the field of dance, music, performance or theater, and identify as disabled, chronically ill, Deaf and/or neurodivergent, please contact us by mail or phone at barrierefreiheit[at] or +49 (0)40 270 949 952 to get more information about registration, the day’s program and accessibility. There will also be non-disabled artists participating in the meeting.

If you want to participate online, please write us to barrierefreiheit[at]

The collaboration is supported by the program inclusive art practice (pik) of the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
