Hislingan

Hislingan is a project aiming to develop functional and inspiring methods on how the culture school, in collaboration with local special schools, can work more inclusive with students with disabilities.

The starting point for the work with Hislingan is the Spinn workshop Virkhall that was developed by dancer Billie Hammarberg and artist Berith Stennabb. Every school gets approximately four visits from Spinn during spring 2018. Spinn will guide the groups through creative work, using both workshops and concrete tools, which the participants can then use in their own pedagogic practice. In addition to this, the project also features the performance Cryptic Gymnastics as an artistic element. Dancers Emilia Wärff and Soledad Howe will also be working with the students, using everybody’s equal value as the starting point.

Hislingan was initiated by Hisingens Kulturskola (the Hisingen culture school), who felt they were unable to reach students with various disabilities. They therefore wanted to equip their pedagogues with better tools in order to reach a broader range od students. The ambition with this project is that the methods it generates can then be other pedagogues in both other culture schools as well as in other special schools. The project is documented by filmmaker Astrid Askberger, which will result in one or two shorter film productions.

Hislingan had an early start on November 28 2017 and ends with a grand closing party on March 28 where some of the involved parties will present the result of the project. Participating schools are Lindholmen Grundsärskola, Snäckebergets skola and Torslandaskolan Särskola. Hislingan is carried out with generous support from Hisingens Kulturskola.
