Northern Character: INCulture International Art and Film Forum is a joint initiative of Northern Character Production Center (Russia) and Webbon Film Company (Sweden), stemming from the experience of organizing film screenings for people with special needs.
The forum will promote the involvement of people with special needs in the cultural life of the region, help them reveal their creativity, provide an opportunity to discuss the challenges of  barrier-free environment in the cultural institutions of the region, access to cultural activities for all residents of the North, exchange experience with colleagues from other cities. One of the important topics that we want to raise at the Forum is inclusive cultural venues.
