So what's going on with this campaign?
If you made it past the homepage, maybe it means you’re interested in understanding our campaign’s goals, activities and means. Maybe you’re wondering how you could contribute to spreading our messages.
That’s great! We really w.a.n.t. people to get on board!
Hereby you’ll find the main activities and tools we have planned so far to spread the news that we all have the right to enjoy the show, and “all” should include spectators with specific needs.
Navigate our website
You can travel all across Europe from inclusive theatre to inclusive theatre, thanks to our interactive map.
We collected and put on the map theatres offering one or more inclusive service. The list is constantly updated: if you run a theatre and you wish to be included, please write us clicking here.
You can start navigating the map clicking here.
As part of the INCLUSIVE THEATER(S) Project, co-financed by Creative Europe, we collected best practices at European level in the field of inclusion of D/deaf, hard of hearing, blind and visually impaired persons in theatres, both as performers and as spectators.
We learned a lot from and so can you: have a look clicking here.
We have a “news from the world” section, where we publish posts and articles from the organisations that joined the W.A.N.T. campaign. You can find very interesting training opportunities, learning materials, invitiations to conferences and live events (online and offline).

Download our Manifesto and spread it all over the internet
Here’s our manifesto. It’s a matter of rights.
Spread it on Facebook and other social networks, we already did the cut & paste work!
You can also download our Manifesto it in a printable format (.pdf file), clicking here, but we strongly advise to make good use of social media to disseminate it (e.g. your Theatre’s or Company’s Facebook or Instagram page), instead of wasting precious natural resources to have people reading it.
We believe the use of paper should be really, really well justified: for example, to reach people who would be totally impossible to communicate with otherwise. However, we also reccommend to look for an environment conscious printing service (e.g. using recycled paper, inks with low environmental impact).
