According to the federal register (as of March 2022), there are about 12 million disabled people living in Russia. A substantial proportion of them are people of active age, children and adolescents who are prepared to be fully involved in economic processes. So far, it is too early to speak of an ideally structured model of education and employment of disabled people but an indubitable growth factor in the given situation consists in efforts geared to motivate such people and realize their individual creative potential. It is successful practices and technologies in the sphere of creative project implementation that could become a catalyst to the socio-emotional motivation of this category of people. How physically challenged people can realize themselves in new creative professions or draw investment into their creative projects? Should inclusivity become a component part of the creative industry?
