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