Article examines the importance of interest in the results of creative activity of people with a disability as a factor in the formation of focus on creative interaction and socio-cultural community with them. We hypothesis that the focus on the active participation of special needs people in the creative activity is more pronounced in a case of interest in the results of their creativity. The study was conducted online, study sample was 40 Russian-speaking respondents, users of social networks dedicated to the creativity of special needs people: 75% women and 25% of men aged 20 to 55. Almost all respondents declared a positive attitude to the creativity of people with disabilities, but only about half of them (47.5%) expressed a clear interest in their creative activities. When comparing the group of respondents who have expressed interest, it was found that this group has significantly more pronounced focus on interacting with people with disabilities than in the group who did not report such interest, and those who value creative activities only as useful and meaningful for special needs people (p < 0.02). The results are meaningful for the creating an inclusive culture in educational institutions.
