The guiding principle of inclusion describes the ideal of a human community in which every human respects the human dignity of his/her fellows and fights in solidarity for the rights of his/her neighbours. All humans, regardless of the goodwill of fellow humans, must ensure the support required for the individual to participate in all aspects of society. This was passed by the UN at the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2006.
hmt tries to adopt this practice. However, it does not relate inclusion simply to disabilities, but to diversity as a whole. As an art school, it is part of our self-concept to understand variety and diversity as fruitful impulses for understanding, teaching and investigating the arts. hmt Rostock is home to a broad range of internationality and diverse languages, cultures, religions and talents.
hmt’s core activity and mission is to diagnose and responsibly handle the artistic aptitude in view of future practice as a performer, teacher of the arts and/or arts scholar. As an art school, hmt provides its students with unusually individual support. To some extent, the hmt treats them ‘all unequally’. There is a large amount of room for individual advice and supervision of the students, particularly in the artistic classes or the courses held in small groups.
