The purpose of the Inspiration call for projects is to encourage and financially support artistic creations that meet the following objectives:

  • Enrich the inclusive dimension of the programming of the Cultural Olympiad in the respect of Olympic and Paralympic values
  • Changing perspectives and bringing a better understanding and apprehension of disability to a wide audience through artistic experiences
  • Strengthening the links between creation, sport and disability and opening up new perspectives for artistic collaboration
