The Special Olympics National Games Berlin 2022 ended on 24 June with an emotional Closing Ceremony and we look back not only on thrilling competitions, but also on the numerous cultural highlights away from the sports venues.
With the Cultural Program, we have shown that sport and culture have many things in common: both arouse emotions, bring people together and want to be used to achieve the overall goal of the Games - to raise awareness of inclusion.
Arts and cultural programs play an important role in changing attitudes by showcasing the abilities of people with intellectual disabilities off the field and in new ways.
A huge thank you goes to the cultural institutions that contributed to an all-around special cultural program alongside sports through their diverse offerings.
For the Special Olympics World Games Berlin 2023 there will be diverse and exciting cultural offers around the Games as well. We are looking forward to giving you the opportunity to enjoy various exhibitions, theater plays, musical performances and other exciting experiences in addition to the sports competitions.
