Important results from the project

The purpose of the project was to show that it is ok to be different with the help of dragqueens who read stories to children. By broadening the norms, we counteracted bullying and exclusion. During the project period we wanted to develop the show and to develop a new method for children with special needs, which should be scalable to spread throughout Sweden to counter segregation and create a more inclusive society.

Expected long term effects

*Audience numbers: Our goal was at least 60 during the project period, which was achieved. * Number of parents: Our goal is to receive input from at least 25 families to children with functional variations, which was met. * We wanted to establish whether the method is scalable for geographical spread, which was met. *We verified that we added something new in the field, increased our knowledge and understanding of the target group and secured quality * We verified the impact on social change and that method development fulfills the purpose of leading to increased inclusivity

Approach and implementation

In collaboration with the organisation Little Echoes, we conducted a survey of over 25 families of children with special needs, where we gathered input that helped us identify the target group´s needs. This was the basis for the development of a new method that in an innovative way attacks the problem of limiting norms both regarding gender roles and disabilities. We tested the method in a user-relevant environment which verified that it can fulfill its purpose - to be scalable to be applied around Sweden.
