access notes

There is an 8cm (3.5 in) lip at the entrance to the gallery. We plan to have a portable ramp for the exterior entrance in time for this event, and can assist with the 112cm (44 in) sliding door. The self-contained gender neutral washroom is not wheelchair accessible, although we have arranged access to a neighbouring business for the night of workhorse, show pony.

If the annual membership fee is a significant barrier to your participation, and you still wish to attend this fundraiser, please contact Katie directly at k.belcher@accessgallery.ca. Other than fundraisers, all of our programming is free to the public.
