Many of the challenges facing higher education institutions over the coming years willundoubtedly be those posed by an ever-increasing population of students with disabilitieswhose pathway into university courses has been encouraged by legislation such asSpecial Educational Needs and Disability Act (SENDA, 2001) and Special EducationalNeeds and Disability Order (SENDO, 2005) in the UK and similar laws and regulations inother countries like Sweden. These challenges are compounded in practice-based artscourses such as those available in the School Creative Arts at UU.The international organisation ShareMusic has created a concept for practice-based artseducation in the form of courses where professional arts practitioners work together withstudents with and without disabilities to create performances of high artistic quality. Themethodologies being developed on the ShareMusic courses internationally could providethe basis for the new pedagogical approaches to interdisciplinary arts activities which willbe required to address the potential problems created by increasing numbers of disabledstudents on university arts courses.
