    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I am Lucy Wilke from the department of cultural affairs of Munich,
    Germany. I am head of a research project on Disability in the Performing
    Arts in Europe.
    This project involves creating a database to provide an overview. The
    idea is to also improve the networking of theater groups and
    institutions which support them.
    Therefore I turn to you to learn more about your institution but also about
    the general situation in Russia (cultural promotion, other groups,
    political situation, etc.). We prepared a short questionnaire that I would like to
    send you. If you would find the time to answer
    it, this would be a great help to us.
    Thank you very much in advance.

    With best regards from Munich
    Lucy Wilke

    My name is Adriana Pérez, I’m responsible for content in Inclús, Barcelona Internacional Disability Film Festival. This year runs the 5th edition from the 28th November to 3rd December at CaixaForum in Barcelona.

    The reason for this email is that we think that it would be very interesting if you participate in the audiovisual contest with the film «Theatre for open hearted» because it would make such a good impact in our public.

    We include a link to our website so you can see how to subscribe to our festival contest (Festhome, ClickforFestival o FilmFreeway) if you find it of your interest.

    For any questions we are at your disposal.

    Thank you.
